Abstract

Pyrolysis is a hopeful innovation for transforming household waste into renewable biofuels. This research gives a draw of on-going endeavours, advances and ecological and financial parts of the innovation. Inside the pyrolysis container, heat pipe framework is used to keep up the temperature. Heat pipe based pyrolysis framework was found to be a cost effective, energy saving successful innovation. This technique depends on the temperature inside the container. Power usage, amount and nature of the outcome are acquired from the procedure and they are validated. Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) from household is used to obtain the biofuels. In this work, the final pyrolysis outputs are biochar, bio-oil and biogas.
