    The pyrolysis behaviour of two different beet pulps was studied in a fluidized bed reactor. Cellulose beads were pyrolyzed as a reference material. Four reaction temperatures, ranging from 673 to 823 K were studied. The distribution of product phases and the composition of the bio-oils were affected by the different raw materials.
