Chromium (III) removal by chars produced in the gasification and co-pyrolysis of rice wastes

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review

Abstract

Rice husk and polyethylene were submitted to thermal conversion through gasification and co-pyrolysis. Besides the production of syngas (gasification and pyrolysis) and oil (pyrolysis) fuels, chars were also obtained during these thermal conversion processes. The chars were collected, characterized through textural and mineral analyses, and used in the removal of Cr (III). Both chars were mainly composed by Si. The gasification char, rich in mesopores and micropores, revealed a better performance for Cr (III) removal than the co-pyrolysis char that presented a surface area mainly of meso and macropores.
