PyNe

The aim of the IEA Bioenergy Task 34 for Pyrolysis (PyNe) is to improve the rate of implementation and success of fast pyrolysis for fuels and chemicals by contributing to the resolution of critical technical areas and disseminating relevant information particularly to industry and policy makers.

The scope of the Task is to monitor, review, and contribute to the resolution of issues that permit more successful and more rapid implementation of pyrolysis technology, including identification of opportunities to provide a substantial contribution to bioenergy. This will be achieved by the activities listed below:

  • Review of bio-oil applications

  • Bio-oil standardization

  • Round robin for analytical method validation

  • Techno-Economic Assessment (TEA) of thermochemical liquefaction technologies.

Current participants in the Task are Finland, Germany, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden and the UK with leadership provided by the USA.

Fast pyrolysis is the means to production of high yields of a liquid product and is the focus of this task. The work of the Task will address the concerns and expectations of the following:

  • Pyrolysis technology developers
  • Equipment manufacturers
  • Chemical producers
  • Policy makers
  • Investors
  • Bio-oil applications developers
  • Bio-oil users
  • Utilities providers
  • Decision makers
  • Planners
