Project TitleBIO-OIL FROM FAST PYROLYSIS OF FORAGE SORGHUM BIOMASS

PI: Dr. Donghai Wang (Kansas State University, Engineering Extension)
Co-PI: Dr. Ron Madl (Kansas State University)
Co-PI: Dr. Scott Staggenborg (Kansas State University)

Funded: $70,000

Start Date: 12/01/2009    End Date: 5/31/2012

EXPECTED OUTCOMES

The main milestones of this research will include developing a coordinated understanding of the relationship among composition, physical and thermal properties, processing condition and bio-oil yield; and determine the optimum pyrolysis conditions for high bio-oil yield and low energy input.
