Methods, systems, and device are provided for utilizing a sliding wall hopper. A sliding wall hopper may include one or more sliding walls that may slide with respect to one or more outer supports of the hopper. The one or more sliding walls may make contact with at least a portion of the material moving through the hopper. The material may be discharged to at least a hopper discharge or a conveyor device. Some embodiments may be configured for use with biomass as the material, but other materials may also be utilized.

Methods, systems, and devices for continuous fuel production are provided. Some embodiments may utilize two pyrolysis platforms, which may utilize biomass as a feedstock. One platform may generally utilize a high temperature pyrolysis process that may generate at least hydrogen and carbon monoxide. This high temperature gas stream may be fed into a lower temperature fast pyrolysis stream as a cover gas. The hot cover gas may react with the fast pyrolysis vapors hydrotreating while the vapors may still be hot and the molecules may still be small. The reacted product may then be distilled on the cool down. This may provide a rapid continuous process for the production of liquid fuels from biomass or other compounds that include carbon-oxygen-hydrogen (COH) compounds.


Methods, systems, and devices for liquid hydrocarbon fuel production, hydrocarbon chemical production, and aerosol capture are provided. For example, a carbon-oxygen-hydrogen (COH) compound may be heated to a temperature of at least 800 degrees Celsius such that the COH compound reacts through a non-oxidation reaction to generate at least a hydrocarbon compound that may be at least a component of a liquid hydrocarbon fuel or a hydrocarbon chemical. The liquid hydrocarbon fuel may be a liquid when at a temperature of 20 degrees Celsius. The COH compound may include biomass. In some cases, the hydrocarbon compound produced through the non-oxidation reaction includes a hydrocarbon aerosol form as the hydrocarbon compound at least as it is produced or cools. Some embodiments include aerosol capture methods, systems, and devices, which may include passing a hydrocarbon aerosol form through a material in a liquid phase in order to gather the aerosol material.

Methods, systems, and/or devices for synthesis gas recapture are provided, which may include methods, systems, and/or devices for filtering a synthesis gas stream. In some cases, tars, particulates, water, and/or heat may be removed from the synthesis gas stream through the filtering of the synthesis gas stream. The filtered synthesis gas stream may then be captured and/or utilized in a variety of different ways. Some embodiments utilizing a COH compound to filter a synthesis gas stream. In some embodiments, the COH compound utilized to filter the synthesis gas stream may be utilized to produce additional synthesis gas. The additional synthesis gas may be filtered by additional COH compound.
