Advancing ‘Bio-Oil’ from Agriculture Waste

The U.S. Department of Agriculture on May 5 said its Agriculture Research Service scientists have found a way to improve traditional pyrolysis methods for producing bio-oils.

The scientists are testing a mobile pyrolysis system for on-farm production of bio-oil from agricultural waste. Using a mobile processing unit, the scientists are working on processing biomass materials, such as wood, switchgrass, and animal manure, to produce the bio-oil.

Ultimately, the Agriculture Research Service hopes to be able to distill the bio-oil in existing petroleum refineries to avoid building out additional refining infrastructure.
