Most small-scale reactors operate by batch processing or handle minimal amounts of feedstock material. As a result, designing, building, and commissioning a custom bench-scale process can be highly time-consuming and costly. Mainstream has eliminated the inherent risk by developing a pyrolysis test platform and is offering the industry a standard system capable of process optimization, bio-oil upgrading, and bio-oil collection testing and research.
Mainstream’s continuous, bench-scale pyrolysis unit provides a reliable test platform for pyrolysis research. The biomass feedstock optimizes the fluidized bed reactor yielding bio-oil of 65%. This system ultimately provides the researcher the ultimate control and flexibility of process parameters (e.g., temperature, residence time) and bio-oil separation and collection.
