Improved Biomass Pyrolysis Method

William Baumgartner, Benedict, Dirk, Boldor, Dorin

This invention relates to methods to create bio-oil from biomass, solid waste or other carbon-containing material. The process can also convert that oil into usable fuel. The biomass is heated into a vapor and then recondensed into oil. The bio-oil is upgraded into fuel either through the use of radio wave or microwave heating. Heating occurs evenly throughout the material, ensuring a more efficient conversion. The process also grants the bio-oil additional stability.
