Valorization of paper sludge by using pyrolysis process.
The research is about modelling and optimizing the pyrolysis process for further upscaling. The patent pilot reactor has now been designed for 100 kg/h capacity. The project consists of developing a CFD model for the reactor and its validation with the operational results. Based on the validation, the reactor can be further designed, improved and finally up-scaled to 1000 kg/h. Next to reactor design, the optimization of the energy efficiency of the pyrolysis process will be part of the project.
