The fixed bed atmospheric pressure pyrolysis and nitrogen swept pyrolysis of the rapeseed cake obtained from cold extraction press have been investigated. Experiments were performed in the Heinze retort at a 7 degrees C min(-1) heating rate, with a 500 degrees C final temperature varying sweep gas velocity (50, 100, 150, 200, 250, 300 cm(3) min(-1)) under nitrogen atmosphere. Liquid, gas, and char yields were determined, pyrolysis conversion was calculated, and liquid, char, and gas products were presented as an environmentally friendly fuel candidate.
