Physicochemical Properties of Biocoal Obtained by the Mild Pyrolysis of Peat
- 19 Downloads
The effect of mild pyrolysis methods (hydrothermal carbonization and torrefaction) on the physicochemical properties of biocoal was studied. It was established that biocoal obtained by hydrothermal carbonization has a large specific surface area and exerts an exothermic effect upon decomposition; as compared with the samples obtained by torrefaction, it has a more dispersed structure and lower ash content.
