Paper present the experimental and numerical analysis of biomass photopyrolysis process. The experimental tests is performed on the solar pyrolysis installation, designed in Institute of Thermal Technology, Gliwice. It consist of the copper reactor powered by artificial light simulating sun. The paper shows the result of the solar pyrolysis of wood. The yield of the main fraction as a function of the process temperature is presented. Additionally the gas composition is determined. The numerical model is prepared in the Ansys Fluent 18.2 software, which allow at the same time for capturing geometry of the real system and easy change of input data. The results indicate that both the product yields (liquid, solid and gaseous) and gas components shares are strongly influenced by pyrolysis parameters and feedstock composition.
