Thermochemical biomass conversion does include a number of possible roots to produce from the initial biomass feedstock useful fuels and chemicals. The base of thermochemical conversion is the pyrolysis process. This paper focuses on this process in order to produce gas mixtures with high H2 content as the main products, significant amounts of liquid and a reactive carbon-rich char as the main byproducts. The relationship between the composition of the starting materials, the process conditions and the desired product yields has also investigated for to find out what are the optimum parameters of thermochemical conversion process.
