Etude thermocinétique de la pyrolyse du bois : application à la pyrolyse du bois d'olivier

Abstract : A theoretical and experimental study of thermo-kinetic of this wood particles pyrolysis has been developed. The thermophysical properties of the olive wood such as apparent density, porosity, permeability and thermal conductivity have been determined experimentally by different measurement methods. A kinetic measurements are carried out by thermogravimetric analysis in isothermal mode in the temperature range between 498 K and 648 K. The experimental curves obtained are interpreted by a kinetic model based on several decomposition stages. The kinetic model coupled with energy conservation equation leads to a non linear equations system which has been solved iteratively by using an implicit finite differences method. The obtained results are in good agreement with the available experimental data. The developed model is then applied to the pyrolysis of a cylindrical olive wood particle in different operating condition to simulate the effect of the reactor temperature and the particle size on the evolution of the temperature profile as well as the residual mass inside the thick particle.
