Abstract

Recently, attention has been given to an innovative class of biochar derived from solar pyrolysis because of its potential to provide an efficient, environmentally acceptable, and cost-effective method for the exploitation of a totally renewable energy source to obtain pyrolyzation, such as solar irradiation. A simple and innovative prototype for biomass pyrolysis is presented, together with some experimental results. The setup allows only the thermal solar energy provided by a system of reflecting mirrors (Linear Mirror II) to heat a selected and local agro-waste biomass. Characterization and effects of biomass which was thermally treated using the Linear Mirror II to perform pyrolysis only through solar energy and without any help from other thermal auxiliary sources is discussed too.
