Destructive Distillation an overview ScienceDirect Topics

Pyrolysis is a process of destructive distillation of organic material. It is carried out in a closed vessel in an atmosphere devoid of oxygen and at temperatures from 500-900° C. Pyrolysis was applied commercially to wood for a very long time for the production of chemicals such as methanol, acetic acid and turpentine, in addition to charcoal.
