Title: Convert Straw into Fuel Oil via a Pyrolysis Process
The aim of the planned project is to convert straw into fuel oil via a pyrolysis process and to provide it for CO2-neutral peak power generation. One of the important innovations in this project is the use of straw instead of wood. Straw is an important biogenic waste material that needs no additional agricultural land and therefore has no rivals. This new process enables the production of fuel oil from straw in decentralized facilities. For the purpose of ideal heat exploitation, the fuel oil should be used in a central peak power plant.
