The 23rd International Conference on Analytical and Applied Pyrolysis (PYRO2020) will be held at Ghent University.

The program includes topics varying from fundamental studies and advanced analytical techniques, up to pyrolysis applications in a commercial setting.

The conference is not limited merely to applied biomass pyrolysis for renewable energy; it will also be dedicated for a significant part to the thermal decomposition of materials like coal, plastics / polymers, and composites.

Products of pyrolysis can be used for (renewable) fuels and advanced materials; valuable green chemicals can be extracted or synthesized from them and, if properly characterized, they can lead to identification of the parent material.
