Pyrolysis is the most important process in the thermal conversion processes of biomass. In this study, pyrolysis of the rapeseed cake was performed within a fixed bed reactor under static nitrogen atmosphere at 650°C pyrolysis temperature and at 15°C min-1 heating rate. The various properties of bio-oil acquired under these conditions were identified. The results of bio-oil showed the green candidate fuel.
