Abstract The report gives results of an experimental investigation of the operating parameters for a mobile waste conversion system based on the Georgia Tech Engineering Experiment Station's partial oxidation pyrolysis process. The object of the testing was to determine the combination of parameters producing the most char and oil and the least gas from agricultural and forestry wastes. The test indicated both the dominant influence of air/feed on char and oil yields, and the desirability of low values of this ratio. In addition to the testing, a preliminary design of a 200 ton/day mobile pyrolysis system for conversion of agricultural and forestry wastes into clean fuels was made and a simplified economic analysis conducted. The results of this work indicate the technical feasibility and the economic profitability of such a system.
