Quantification of Chlorine in solid fuels and its release behaviour during pyrolysis
MetadataShow full item record
Chlorine release during biomass pyrolysis is studied in this Ph.D. project. Two novel methodsare developed for accurate quantification of chlorine in coal, biomass and plastic fuels.Pyrolysis results of sodium chloride loaded cellulose reveal that interactions betweenchlorine and cellulose organic structure cause low temperature release of HCI duringbiomass pyrolysis. Distribution of chlorine in pyrolysis products is examined under variousreactor configurations during mallee bark pyrolysis demonstrating significant non-HCIchlorine release.

Rahim, Usman; Gao, Xiangpeng; Wu, Hongwei (2015)This study reports the chlorine (Cl) release during the slow pyrolysis of NaCl-loaded cellulose in the temperature range of 150–400 °C, providing new data to better understand the low-temperature Cl release during biomass ...
Rahim, M.; Gao, Xiangpeng; Garcia-Perez, M.; Li, Yi; Wu, Hongwei (2013)Mallee bark (75-150 µm) was pyrolyzed at 400-900 °C under various conditions to investigate chlorine (Cl) release and distribution among char, tar, and gas. All Cl species in the bark are in form of water-soluble chlorides. ...
Rahim, M.; Gao, Xiangpeng; Wu, Hongwei (2013)This study reports a method for quantifying total chlorine (Cl) in low-rank solid fuels such as biomass and brown coal. It is a two-step method that separates fuel Cl into Cl released in volatiles and that retained in ...
