    Abstract: Catalytic co-pyrolysis of biomass and plastic is a promising technology to their resource recovery and energy conversion. For the traditional technologies, the two feedstocks are mechanically mixed (MM) to the co-conversion reaction. However, there are disadvantages in the MM mode process, such as mixing nonuniformity and inconvenient transportatio... Show More
