Pyrolysis oil applications

Current focus is on boiler applications from 1 MW to 20 MW. Pyrolysis oil combustion in a boiler or furnace for heat and/or electricity generation is the most simple and straightforward application. Pyrolysis oil can replace both heavy and light fuel oils in industrial boiler applications, but it can also replace natural gas. These companies can now design, supply and guarantee burners using pyrolysis oil and meet the stringent Dutch emission limits.

Possible future pyrolysis oil applications:

  • R&D is going on for application on stationary diesels and gas turbines. 
  • Pyrolysis oil for chemical applications (e.g. see WP 5: Development and demonstration of organic recovery) 
  • Automotive applications
