Symposium Energy Materials 2017: Materials in Clean Power
Presentation Title C-22: Pyrolysis of Different Wood Species Investigated by TGA-GC-MS
Author(s) Ekkehard Post
On-Site Speaker (Planned) Ekkehard Post
Abstract Scope Wood is an important energy source with a zero carbon dioxide balance. This means the carbon dioxide produced during combustion was originally captured by the plants. Instead of firing the wood in air, it could also be heated up in inert gas atmosphere to produce charcoal and also gaseous organic products. The pyrolysis of different wood species was investigated by a thermo balance connected to a gas chromatograph with mass spectrometer (TGA-GC-MS). This instrument combination allows measuring the mass change of the substances versus temperature and time. By GC-MS the gaseous products were identified in real time (quasi-continuous), giving a direct correlation to actual temperature, time and mass. Alternatively, the gaseous products were collected in a “cryo-trap” at -50C and analyzed after the TGA measurement by high resolution GC-MS analysis.The TGA-GC-MS results will be shown and explained for selected wood samples.
