Title: PRODUCTION SYSTEM AND PROCESS FOR OBTAINING BIO-OIL FROM BIOMASS
Abstract:
The invention relates to a system for generating bio-oil from biomass and a process for producing bio-oil from biomass. The system for producing bio-oil from biomass comprises: a mechanism for the continuous supply of biomass; a pyrolyser having a biomass inlet connected to the mechanism for the continuous supply of biomass, and having a mesh; a mechanism for separating solids connected to the pyrolyser; and a condenser connected to the mechanism for separating solids. The process for the production of bio-oil from biomass comprises the following steps: a) continuously supplying biomass to a pyrolyser; b) pyrolysing the biomass at a heating rate of greater than 1000°C/s, to a temperature between 300°C and 750°C, and with a dwell time of less than 2 seconds, in the pyrolyser; c) separating particulate material present in the gases obtained via pyrolysis in step b), in a mechanism for separating solids; and d) condensing the gases obtained via pyrolysis that are condensible to a temperature between -30°C and 0°C, in a condenser.
