The Cornell Pyrolysis program encompasses advanced research on many aspects of pyrolysis systems, ranging from bioenergy to new biomaterials, agronomy and soil science, environmental remediation, economics and social sciences. Bioenergy research includes fundamental processes during thermochemical conversion to fermentation of pyrolysis syngas to liquid transportation fuels and techno-economic assessments. Biochar research includes basic insights into its behavior in soil, persistence, transport, effects on plant growth, microbial composition and dynamics, nutrient and carbon cycles as well as life-cycle assessment of greenhouse gas emissions or water quality and economics. New materials research entails building materials, fabrics and environmental remediation.

An important resource for the Cornell Pyrolysis program is a state-of-the-art slow pyrolysis facility.
