The Effect of Molecular Sieves on the Thermolysis of Cedar in a Tubular Furnace Reactor

M. Nakayasu, N. Morita, and H. Nakagome
Abstract—Japanese cedar was pyrolyzed using a tubular furnace reactor with added molecular sieves in an attempt to increase the quantity of methane produced. A predetermined mixture of molecular sieves and cedar were heated in the tubular furnace reactor up to 700 °C under a nitrogen atmosphere. The flammable gas and the residual substance provided by the thermolysis were examined. The yield of the CH4, which is a combustible gas generated from thermolysis, was increase by adding 5A molecular sieves. In addition, the tubular furnace was found to cause complete thermolysis.

Index Terms—Thermal decomposition, tubular reactor, biomass, molecular sieves.
