Resumen

The aim of this work is to test the capacity of a biochar-based porous material to enhance the cracking of pyrolysis vapors. Biochar is a sustainable material obtained from renewable resources and a relatively low cost alternative to the metal-containing catalysts used in catalytic cracking.
