The work is devoted to the study of the effect of high-power microwave radiation on sphagnum peat. To implement the microwave pyrolysis process, a laboratory unit based on a coaxial resonator has been created. An industrial magnetron with a frequency of 2.45 GHz was used as a source of microwave radiation. Samples of gas, liquid and solid phases were obtained and analyzed. Studies of soft microwave pyrolysis in conditions of constant removal of gaseous reaction products were carried out. A

The aim of the research is to create highly efficient environmentally friendly technologies for processing biofuels with a high yield of combustible gases, suitable for further use in power plants, as well as the production of resinous fraction and carbon residue.
