According to this research, Oman pyrolysis gasoline market reached a volume of 311,581 Tons in 2018, growing at a CAGR of around 3% during 2011-2018.
'Unlike the technologies which involve incineration that requires oxygen to burn and produce dioxin, fast pyrolysis does not involve any burning as it is the process of heating organic matter in the absence of oxygen and making it decompose to produce flue gas, liquid oil, diesel and biochar (fertiliser),' he told Malay Mail.
Fast pyrolysis has the advantage of being able to transform difficult-to-handle biomass of different nature -- such as verge grass, bark and husks -- into a clean and uniform bio-oil, which is easy to store and use for bioenergy.
Enviro's goal for its development efforts is for pyrolysis oil to be priced on the basis of its value to the petrochemical industry as a fuel, as well as from the perspective of sustainability.
