The paper provides a historical overview of some 21 U.S. research and development activities associated with municipal/industrial waste and biomass conversion-to-energy pyrolysis technologies. The history begins in the early 1970's and is brought forward to the present. Of the 21 pyrolysis processes/Projects discussed, 19 were sponsored by the U.S. Government (7 by their Environmental Protection Agency and 12 by their Department of Energy) and 2 were developed by industry. Five pyrolysis demonstration plants are described, as are one prototype-scale effort, 6 pilot-scale projects, 8 bench-scale activities, and the plans for one commercial plant soon to be constructed.
