Catalytic effects of several additives on co-pyrolysis of tobacco stalk and waste rubber tire powder
MetadataShow full item record
The components and yield of the oil obtained by co-pyrolysis of a mixture of tobacco stem and waste rubber tire powder were investigated. The results shows that 450°C is an optimal temperature in terms of liquid product yield when the reactants are mixtures of tobacco stem and waste rubber tire powder with a mass ratio of 11. It is found that the liquid product from co-pyrolysis contains less water and oxygen element, and meanwhile, hydrocarbon content increases to some degree compared with that from pyrolysis of solo pyrolysis of tobacco stem, which means the oil from co-pyrolysis is improved. However, how to improve the liquid product quality further and how to control the hazardous element emissions via co-pyrolysis needs still further studies. © 2011 IEEE.
