The Justice League of Pyromaniax

Submitted by on March 14, 2017 – 11:35 amNo Comment

by Jim Lane (Biofuels Digest)  The High Lords of Pyrolysis travel under the unlikely cover identities of “George Huber” and “Robert Brown” — but we know them in their true superhero identities of “The Catalyst” and “The Godfatha”. …  Instead, the Justice League has assembled online in a journal format.

The Journal they are appearing in — Energy Technology, helmed by the irrepressible John Ulrich ….

… pyro oil is too unstable with too much oxygen.

Accordingly, a host of technologies have been developed in the Caverns of Invention, under a variety of names. Among them: fractional pyrolysis, hydrotreating of pyrolysis oils, autothermal pyrolysis, hydropyrolysis, in situ catalytic pyrolysis, and ex situ catalytic pyrolysis.

So, where are the gallons? According to the High Lords, “Most commercial development of pyrolysis technology is empirical in nature, still dependent on an Edisonian approach to innovation,” and what is needed is a “wide ranging exploration of the science and engineering challenges of pyrolysis energy technologies”. Hence the assembly of the Justice League in this digital conclave.

But two themes are emerging. First, the opportunities radical improvement of catalytic performance in targeting hydrocarbons out of a fast pyrolysis process. Second, a broadening range of feedstocks to increasingly embrace zero-cost and negative-cost waste.  READ MORE
