Technologies that produce electricity, heat, and fuel from biomass feedstocks

There are many conversion technologies that use biomass to produce heat, electricity, products, or fuel. This paper will explain the typical technologies used and the research underway to convert a wide variety of biomass feedstocks into useful forms of energy.

Technologies available for the production of heat and electricity include combustion, gasification, pyrolysis, and anaerobic digestion. For biofuels production, the technologies available include biochemical or thermochemical conversion processes to break down biomass feedstocks into transportation fuels. Research and innovation for biomass conversion technologies is still underway as the industry moves toward building commercial scale facilities that will use advanced bioenergy crops.
