21 th International Symposium on Analytical and Applied Pyrolysis
Sprache des Tagungstitel:
In this paper we want to present the design of a novel large scale pyrolysis reactor. The setup is constructed to handle polymeric waste materials and other
waste streams in the range of 10 to 30 kg per hour and transfer them into a gaseous feedstock and char. The gas (at above 400 °C) is monitored by quasi-online gas chromatography/mass spectrometry in order to qual
ify and quantify its components and then burned to create heat in the first place and then
energy. An important design feature of the pilot plant is that all steps can be monitored such as the gas
and char composition, pollutants after the burner and the efficiency of the heat/energy transfer steps.
The characterization of the char is
performed by elemental analysis to estimate its heating value and icp MS to monitor the content of toxic metals. This work will present the first results on the pyrolysis of homogenous polymers which are used to optimize the basic reactor settings in terms of feed speed, temperature and residence time.
