Pyrolysis of bio masses result in bio char and bio oil. These are both usable energy sources. They can be used as safe, environment-friendly fuel options. Pyrolysis also provides an opportunity for the processing of agricultural residues, wood wastes and municipal solid waste into clean energy. Bio char could also make a big difference in the fossil fuel emissions worldwide. It is an important figure in the carbon market because of its clean production technology. Pyrolysis is often used in the chemical industry. It is used for example, to produce charcoal and activated carbon, to turn waste into safely disposable substances, and to produce gasoline from hydrocarbons. Many different kinds of bio masses can be used in pyrolysis like soybeans, sunflowers, corn, and much more!
Various features of carbon black are controlled in production by partially combusting oil or gases. Carbon black is widely used in various applications from black coloring pigment of newspaper inks to electric conductive agent of high-technology materials. Carbon black is a basic material with a long history, and it has been used as a coloring agent since the days before Christ. Since carbon black has nano-particles with various functions such as ultra-violet absorption and conductivity, it is still being applied to new fields such as electronic equipment and devices. Some applications of carbon black, which is a conventional yet new material, are shown below.
Furthermore, Mitsubishi Chemical has been developing carbon black with various combined functions for special applications.
