Design and Development of a Novel Centrifuge Ablative Pyrolysis Approach for Biomass Conversion to Bio-oil and Bio-char

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.


Pyrolysis has evolved as key pre-treatment step to produce renewable fuels and chemicals from agricultural and forestry residues. In the past few years, there have been different directions in the development of pyrolysis... [ view full abstract ]
