The slow pyrolysis of soybean cake in a fixed-bed reactor was investigated under three different atmospheres: static, for determining the effects of pyrolysis temperature and particle size, nitrogen and steam. The liquid yield of 33.78% was attained at 550 degreesC pyrolysis temperature and 200 cm(3)/min sweeping gas flow rate with the soybean oil cake samples having 0.850
