What is it about?

Pyrolysis is a way to use residual fiber from the shells of coconut. Both bio-oil and aqueous phases produced by pyrolysis contain oxygenated compounds with a high predominance of phenolic compounds, mainly alkylphenols. This preliminary assessment indicates that coconut fibers have the potential to be a cost-effective and promising alternative to obtain new products and minimize environmental impact.
