Abstract

Biomass is one of the most interesting sources of organic carbon that can be used for obtaining renewable chemicals. This chapter focuses on the potential offered by a combination of two approaches, which are often considered as an alternative or sometimes even competing: thermochemical processing and biological processing. Understanding of hybrid thermochemical–biological processes requires a steep change in the view of pyrolysis processes. Because most of pyrolysis studies aim to directly obtain a fuel, Pyrolysis Products (PyP) are usually characterized in terms of average fuel proprieties, neglecting details on molecular structures. Microbial Mixed Consortia (MMC) conversions of PyP is something relatively new; thus, some data were back-calculated from experimental results to provide a general indication of the maximum yields and rates obtainable from biological conversions of pyrolysis products with MMC. The metabolic potential of a MMC system can address the conversion of the complex mixture produced by pyrolysis.
