TRANSPORT MODEL WITH RADIATIVE HEAT TRANSFER FOR RAPID CELLULOSE PYROLYSIS.

    Abstract

    A mathematical model is presented which describes mass and heat transport during rapid pyrolysis of small cellulose particles. Radiative heat transfer within porous cellulose is modelled using the method of zones. Solution of the governing equations shows that radiation substantially increases the overall energy flux into cellulose at high temperatures, and that condensible product yield decreases when large temperature gradients are present in the solid. The model is a useful tool for comparing the importance of different physical and chemical processes in pyrolysis and for predicting trends in product yields at different conditions.
