Summary:
ISU researchers have developed a process for taking phenolic oils from lignocellulosic biomass and curing them to obtain a coal substitute.

Development Stage:
Description:
This technology involves the curing of phenolic oils derived from pyrolysis into a material suitable for combustion as a coal-supplement or as a coal replacement for steam generation. Stage Fraction 1 and 2 materials are processed by water washing to remove sugars and are subsequently heated by waste process heat to a hardened form. This cured and hardened material is then ground to a consistency comparable to coal and tested as a combustion fuel.

Advantage:
• Derived from renewable sources
• Can be overall carbon neutral
• Can be used with existing infrastructure
• Can be used as either a 100% replacement or a co-fire fuel in coal boilers
Application:
Combustion fuel
