Abstract

A continuous flow reaction system designed for producing acetic acid by wet oxidation (WO) of biomass with the maximum treatment capacity of 1 kg/h of dry biomass was developed. Experimental runs with rice hulls and starch were conducted at reaction temperatures between 300-320°C, for time of 2 and 3 min, with oxygen supplies between 70 and 100%, and at pressures between 10 and 30 MPa. The influence of each of these parameters was evaluated.
