Pyrolysis

Pyrolysis is the decomposition of organic matter at elevated temperatures (300 and 1300 °C) in the absence of oxygen at atmospheric pressures. The useful products generated are a charcoal-like biochar solid product, a bio-oil formed from ‘condensable’ volatile substances and ‘non-condensable’ gases which may include both carbon dioxide and methane.

How do you solve a problem like PFAS?

PFAS (per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances) are generated from the breakdown of fluorinated polymers. The activation barrier for their breakdown is huge and the only fully commercialised processes possibly capable of destroying PFAS are thermochemical ones.
