Abstract: Pyrolysis of sludge is the thermo chemical technology, which is alternative for sludge disposal technique. Co-pyrolysis is used to enhance the quality of liquid product from Pyrolysis. Effective quantity of bio char (solid product) produced in this process. In this work, pyrolysis and co-pyrolysis of MSS, Waste Biomass blends (1:1) was performed in a fixed bed reactor to recover bio-char, combustible gases and oil/wax. It is established that yield and composition of the products recovered, depends on the temperature. The residue bio-char derived from pyrolysis and co-pyrolysis of MSS and bio-mass waste were studied. The bio-char was characterized by Fourier Transform Infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), elemental analysis (CHN), BET surface area, WD-XRF analysis. Adsorption experiments were carried out to investigate the effects of various parameters on adsorption capacity and utilization of bio-char as an adsorbent. High adsorption capacity is observed for bio char from co-pyrolysis of MSS and waste bio mass. Almost 90% COD removal is observed by using this bio char.
