Pyrolysis is the most fundamental process in thermal chemical conversion of biomass, and pyrolysis kinetic analysis is valuable for the in-depth exploration of process mechanisms. On the basis of thermal gravity analysis of different kinds of biomass feedstock, thermal kinetics analysis was performed to analyze the pyrolysis behavior of biomass. With the apparent kinetic parameters derived, a kinetic model was proposed for the main reaction section of biomass pyrolysis process. The pyrolysis characteristics of three kinds of biomass material were compared in view of corresponding biochemical constitution. Through model simulation of different pyrolysis processes, the diversity in pyrolysis behavior of different kinds of biomass feedstock was analyzed and pyrolysis mechanism discussed. The results derived are useful for the development and optimization of biomass thermal chemical conversion technology.
