Project Title: BIO-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)
Start Date: 12/01/2009 End Date: 5/31/2012
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.
