In this paper, the fast pyrolysis experiment of particle board was carried out on a fixed bed reactor and a Py-GC/MS equipment. The effects of temperature and gas phase residence time on the product yields and its components distribution were investigated. The effect of components of particle board on product yields and its components distribution was also investigated. The results showed that the temperature has a great influence on the yields of fast pyrolysis products, and the yield of pyrolysis oil reached the highest at 550°C. The urea-formaldehyde resin would prevent the pyrolysis of particle board. Compared with the bio-oil from fast pyrolysis of wood, the major components of the bio-oil from fast pyrolysis of particle board did not change much.
