This article provides a brief overview of recent work connected with integrated hydropyrolysis and hydrotreating of biomass. It covers relevant aspects of biomass pyrolysis, and describes a process wherein oxygen is eliminated from pyrolysis vapors in the presence of hydrogen and appropriate catalysts. An integrated version of a process is discussed, wherein the reforming of noncondensable hydrocarbon vapors is used to generate all the hydrogen required to sustain hydropyrolysis and hydroconversion, and produce a deoxygenated liquid hydrocarbon fuel.
