Pyrolysis Oils
General Characteristics 

Pyrolysis fuel oil is a mixture of higher boiling aromatic hydrocarbons, produced as a by-product during pyrolysis of oil fractions. It is a dark, viscous liquid with pour point approx. 15 °C.

Pyrolysis fuel oil is used as an intermediate for the production of carbon black and it can also be used as a low-sulphur fuel oil.

The product is classified as hazardous pursuant to Act No. 350/20011 Coll. and corresponding EU legal regulations (Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 CLP, Directive No 67/548/EHS or Directive No 1999/45/EC.
