This paper describes the design features and operational details of a molten metal pyrolysis reactor. Such a
reactor allows pyrolysis experimentation on biomass, aluminium-laminated plastics, mixed plastics, carbon fibre
materials, etc. Experimental results on biodegradable plastic, carbon fibre composites, biomass and printed circuit
boards (PCBs) are presented.
• The inner container can have a sloped or flat-bottom depending on the material.
• The method can be used to pyrolyse composite and pure materials.
