  • Liquid fuels from woody biomass

    Although challenges like global climate change and oil depletion will increasingly drive fuel selection, increasing bioenergy use is only one of many possible responses to these problems. Present biomass liquid fuels are almost all derived from food crops, but their potential for further expansion is limited. Any major expansion of biomass liquid fuels will require use of the more abundant ...

  • Ethanol, Biomass Plants Planned for Minnesota

    Proposed facilities prepare to turn organic residuals into electricity, methane and synthesis gas “with minimal emissions and more profit.” AN ETHANOL plant in Little Falls, Minnesota is building an on-site gasifier that will convert wood waste and distiller's grains to gas for generating electricity and heat to serve the needs of the Central Minnesota Ethanol Cooperative. At the same time, ...

  • Water-saving analysis on an effective water reuse system in biodiesel feedstock production based on Chlorella zofingiensis fed-batch cultivation

    The micralgae-based biofuel obtained from dairy wastewater (DWW) is considered a promising source of energy. However, this process consumes water due to the concentration of wastewater being normally too high for some micoralgae cultivation, and dilution is always needed. In this work, the cultivation of microalgae has been examined in non-recirculated water (NR) and recirculated water systems ...

  • Efficiency analysis of hydrogen production methods from biomass

    Hydrogen is considered as a universal energy carrier for the future, and biomass has the potential to become a sustainable source of hydrogen. This article presents an efficiency analysis of hydrogen production processes from a variety of biomass feedstocks by a thermochemical method – gasification as well as biochemical methods – fermentation and anaerobic digestion. The exergetic ...

  • Feasibility analysis for biomass in cities, counties and facilities

    The commercial waste industry includes all those who collect waste from the simplest “collect waste and transport to a landfill” to the more complex “collect waste and process into re-usable components and energy.” This article will cover how we can collect material and fuel a clean energy system for our immediate future, while saving clean water and air. ...

  • Biomass is Carbon Neutral – What Does This Mean for Sustainability?

    The topic of climate change is not without its fair share of controversy, and while there are dozens of conflicting scientific and political perspectives at play, one positive that has emerged from the chaos is that the average global citizen is far more aware of the importance of sustainability and environmental responsibility than perhaps ever before. This has trickled into the realm of ...

  • For a Green Future: an Overview of Biomass Energy in China

    Biomass energy Biomass refers to biological materials or organic materials which is renewable and sustainable and could be used as a fuel source. The energy derived from the biomass materials  is called biomass energy. Biomass energy as one type of renewable energy has be developed with priorities in China. Current situation of Biomass resource in China ...


  • Generating biomass fuel from disaster debris

    Natural disasters create massive amounts of vegetative debris, the majority of which is landfilled or open burned. These environmentally harmful practices are the norm partly out of necessity and convenience, with a focus on clearing material as quickly as possible after a disaster - versus finding outlets for the material including mulch, compost and biomass fuel. The biomass fuel market in ...

  • Corn stover to sustain soil organic carbon further constrains biomass supply

    Sustainable aboveground crop biomass harvest estimates for cellulosic ethanol production, to date, have been limited by the need for residue to control erosion. Recently, estimates of the amount of corn (Zea mays L.) stover needed to maintain soil carbon, which is responsible for favorable soil properties, were reported (5.25–12.50 Mg ha–1). These estimates indicate stover needed to maintain soil ...

  • Business viability of biomass co-firing and gasification for electricity generation

    Greenhouse gas reduction occurs as a result of substitution of woody biomass for coal. Coal is the worst amongst all the fossil fuels in terms of greenhouse gas emission per unit of electricity generated. Recent concerns related to the environmental impact of greenhouse gases from using fossil based feedstock, like coal, for the generation of power, specifically electricity have driven the need ...

  • Possibility of biomass gasification in tea manufacturing industries in Assam, India

    Tea manufacturing industries in India use natural gas, tea drying oil, wood, and coal for process heat. India is the second largest producer of tea [(1,137.07, China 1,761.00) million kilogram] in 2012. About 0.6–1.2 kg of coal is required to produce one kilogram of dried tea with average moisture of 2.5–3 percentage (w.b.). Biomass gasification is an established renewable energy technology for ...

  • Resource assessment, logistical simulation, and risk quantification Of biomass supply

    Taraneh Sowlati and co-authors Jamie Stephen, Shahab Sokhansanj, and Toni Bi researched biomass supply. Generally, in assessments of bioenergy potential, biomass supply is assumed to be constant over an extended period of time for a particular region. This assumption is not realistic in the context of agriculture, said Sowlati. “Because there has been little examination of supply reliability, we ...

  • North American forest biomass helps EU hit 2020 energy targets

    BC Bioenergy Network ("BCBN"), a provincially-funded leader in the growing bioenergy sector in British Columbia and the Wood Pellet Association of Canada ("WPAC"), have released a report that documents Canada's contribution to the EU's renewable energy targets.
