Fast Pyrolysis of Biomass: A Handbook Volume 3

Edited by A V Bridgwater 
CPL Press  2005  

Volume 3 - Hardback  221pp  ISBN 1872691927      £50.00
This handbook is an edited vension of the final report of the European Commission and IEA Bioenergy sponsored Pyrolysis Network that officially finished in 2004. It provides a companion volume the first and second handbooks * published in 1999 and 2002 respectively and it is again intended that this will provide a useful guide both to newcomers to the subject area as well as those already involved in research, development and implementation. A significant feature of this third volume is the greater attention paid to wider issues concerning pyrolysis including environment, health and safety, norms and standards and marketability.

*Note: volume 1 and volume 2 are now available (May 2008) as reprints (original text in hardcover format - print-on-demand)

The most comprehensive and up-to-date publication on this subject is Science in Thermal and Chemical Biomass Conversion

The benefits from the PyNe Network have been in regularly bringing together the hard core of scientists and engineers from Europe and North America who are involved in developing fast pyrolysis in order to share in information and help develop the technology. This small group has, however, not been the only beneficiary as all the meetings have been open to guests and visitors and some meetings have attracted up to 80 participants, all of whom have both contributed to or benefited from the activities of the Network.

A key feature of this PyNe network has been the associated European Commission contracts on health and safety (Chapters 4. 5 and 6), norms and standards (Chapter 2 and 3). market competitivity Chapter 10) and recommendations for policy and strategy arising from an Expert meeting (Chapter 12). These are solid evidence of the co-operation within the network and contributions to resolving technical and non-technical barriers.
