Abstract: Abstract: Microbial, vegetal or animal organic matter, which has potential to be transformed into energy, is considered biomass. Among the various alternative energy sources, biomass is the only one with the possibility of generating a class of substances of interest for fine chemistry (ketones, aldehydes, alcohols, phenols, etc.). From biomass, it is possible to produce bio-oil using pyrolysis, a thermodegradation process. The quality of the bio-oil depends on the process conditions (pyrolysis temperature, h…
