In this brief review demonstrates to pyrolysis of lignocellulosic biomass technology, with its process, products and applications, and also some projects in the area nationally. It used to supply the scientific research bases SciELO and Periodicals of CAPES, and the number of citations the deciding factor in choosing the best works. What you might notice is that there are three basic processes of pyrolysis, each suited to the type of desired product, and that the main product of pyrolysis bio-oil, has a number of applications. It was also the presence of three important nationally pyrolysis projects, one belonging to UNICAMP, another UFU and a third of UFPI. Pyrolysis is a technology that needs to be studied and improved for future use in large projects for energy production.
