A multi-purpose pilot-scale molten metal & molten salt pyrolysis reactor

MethodsX. 2021 Dec 16;9:101606. doi: 10.1016/j.mex.2021.101606. eCollection 2022.


This paper describes the design features and operational details of a molten metal pyrolysis reactor. Such a reactor allows pyrolysis experimentation on biomass, aluminium-laminated plastics, mixed plastics, carbon fibre materials, etc. Experimental results on biodegradable plastic, carbon fibre composites, biomass and printed circuit boards (PCBs) are presented.•The inner container can have a sloped or flat-bottom depending on the material.•The method can be used to pyrolyse composite and pure materials.
