Fast pyrolysis bio-oils for industrial boilers - Requirements and test methods
|Publication Date:||1 March 2017|
|ICS Code (Biofuels):||75.160.40|
This European Standard specifies requirements and test methods for fast pyrolysis bio-oils for boiler use at industrial scale (>1 MW thermal capacity), not for domestic use. Two different grades are specified.
It is recommended to draw attention to differences especially in those properties, which can have an effect on the required flue gas treatment system, such as ash, nitrogen, and sulfur content. National and local regulations determine the requirements for flue gas treatment system.
In addition to the quality requirements and test methods for fast pyrolysis bio-oils, further instructions on storage (Annex A), sampling, and materials compatibility (Annex B) are given.
NOTE For the purposes of this European Standard, the term "% (m/m)" is used to represent respectively the mass fraction.
