Abstract

The initial step of biomass thermal conversion involves the
primary decomposition of the lignocellulosic matrix that is composed
of three interconnected polymeric materials: cellulose, hemicellulose,
and lignin. Pyrolysis mechanisms typically include a superposition of
the kinetic mechanisms for the individual components of the biomass
material. The validity and development of these mechanisms is
currently of interest [1-3]. A graphical summary of two global
biomass pyrolysis models [1,3] at the experimental conditions of this
study is presented in Figure 1
