FUNCTION Niacin is a water-soluble vitamin of the B complex; it is also referred to as vitamin B3 or nicotinic acid. It is one of the eight water-soluble B vitamins that are important for normal function of body processes. Nicotinic acid can be made in the body from the amino acid tryptophan.

The first step is the pretreatment of the biomass; it includes the grinding of the tobacco to the appropriate size. Subsequently, the biomass is dried as the moisture content of the particle will determine the efficiency of the process. The second step is the Paralysis reaction; the preheated mass is introduced into the paralysis reactor which contains an airlock to keep the oxygen and unwanted air out of the reactor. The combustor preheats the paralysis reactor and heats the biomass indirectly. Paralysis of organic substances produces the gas and liquid product, leaving the solid residue behind.
