PyroRefinery

The PyroRefinery technology is aimed at biorefining the products produced by the PyroFlash process. The pyroligneous acid and pyrolysis oil contain valuable chemical components. These components can serve as feedstock for the food and chemical industry but are sometimes products by themselves.

PyroRefinery will initially focus on the separation of organic acids, phenols and lactones.

An overview of reported chemical components is shown in below table.
