A Comparative Analysis of Heat Recovery and Product Stabilization in Fluid-Bed and Ablative Pyrolysis Systems

Murlidhar Gupta

CanmetENERGY, Natural Resources Canada

Dr. Gupta’s expertise is primarily focussed on process analysis, modelling and integration of advance energy conversion systems based on renewables e.g. bio-energy.  As  a research scientist with Bioenergy Systems in Industrial Innovation Group of CanemetENERGY at Ottawa, Dr. Gupta supports applied research in biomass pyrolysis, gasification and bio-oil upgrading for value added applications. Dr. Gupta earned his doctorate in Chemical Engineering from Universite LAVAL , Canada and he has also worked as a process engineering in integrated petrochemicals manufacturing.


Fast pyrolysis is a key process for converting renewable biomass residues into char, bio-oil and off gases. Rapid biomass heating and rapid vapour quenching have been the essence of fast pyrolysis in order to maximize the... [ view full abstract ]
