    A novel gas-pressurized (GP) torrefaction with high oxygen removal efficiency at mild temperature was proposed in our previous work. However, the optimal condition of the GP torrefaction and subsequent pyrolysis of the torrefied biomass were not clear. In this work, the effect of pressure on the GP torrefaction and pyrolysis product properties of the torrefied biomass were studied in detail. The results show that the pressure increasing from 1.7 MPa to 5.0 MPa just slightly contributed to further oxygen removal, and 1.7 MPa was thus selected as the optimum pressure. The GP torrefaction significantly improved the product property of biomass pyrolysis compared to the conventional torrefaction (AP torrefaction). The acids content in bio-oil was reduced from 15-20% to less than 5%, and the calorific value of biogas increased to as high as 16.57-19.31 MJ/Nm3. Furthermore, an overall conversion mechanism of combined GP torrefaction and subsequent pyrolysis of biomass was proposed. Copyright © 2020. Published by Elsevier Ltd.
