Special issue with results presented in the CASCATBEL workshop on Thermochemical lignocellulose conversion technologies

A special thematic issue named “Advances in catalytic biomass fast pyrolysis and bio-oil upgrading” has been published in the journal “Biomass Conversion and Biorefinery” with a collection of selected papers originally presented at the “Thermochemical lignocellulose conversion technologies workshop” which was organized in the frame of CASCATBEL project in May 2016 by the Chemical Process and Energy Resources Institute (CPERI/CERTH, Greece) and Hamburg University of Technology (TUHH, Germany).

The compilation of these studies nicely presents the state-of-the-art on biomass pyrolysis and upgrading processes, encompassing all aspects of the process development, ranging from material synthesis to theoretical understanding of the reactions and kinetics to experimental validation of the processes.

Volume 7, Issue 3, September 2017. Issue Editors: Heracleous, E.; Lappas, A.; Serrano, D.
