Caption: Bioenergy research. Close-up of charcoal pellets derived from the bagasse (dry pulp) of sweet sorghum plants. By using flash pyrolysis, a rapid heating in the abscence of oxygen, biofuels such as gas and oil are derived from the bagasse of sweet sorghum. In this process about 12% of the biomass is converted into charcoal powder which is difficult to utilise. Consolidated into pellets, the charcoal may be used for the manufacture of high quality steel thanks to its very low sulphur content.
