  • 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 ...

  • Biomass energy outlook

    Over the last three or four weeks, my newsletter, Burning Bio News, has been oddly extreme. Timothy Searchinger, Princeton University, is churning out more antibiofuel hearsay. Dennis Avery, Hudson Institute, was in the news again putting a counter-spin on climate change. The U.S.EPA released its proposed rule for regulation of Greenhouse Gases (GHG) that includes industrial facilities that emit ...

  • Biomass power generation in China

    “China is an agricultural country,” said Frank Miao. Farmers used to burn harvest waste, and the government decided to capture this energy by constructing a biomass power plant. At the end of 2006, the total biomass power generation capacity in China was approximately 2,200 megawatts (MW). The planned capacity of biomass power plants is 30,000 MW by 2020. Depending on the size of the plant, three ...

  • 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, ...

  • Biomass Pellet Fuel and Its Advantages

    With the continuous deterioration of the people's living environment, global warming topic has become a concern of people from all walks of people. It has been very important to the development of new energy. At present, our main fuel is oil and coal, these are non-renewable materials, and you'll never have again when we use them up. Therefore, many countries are in the research of new energy, ...

  • National biomass energy program in Thailand

    In Thailand, about 80% of the total energy used is from conventional energy sources and almost half of the energy used is imported. Biomass energy is seen to be the most promising compared to other renewable energy sources. This paper aims to examine the past, present and future trends of the energy situation in the country. The roles of both the authorities and stakeholders in biomass ...

  • Mountain of Mulch Grows at Biomass Plant

    Renegy Holdings may not be in the mulch business, but you’d never know it. Piled on the company’s property is 25,000 tons of high-quality mulch, and that’s only since the beginning of 2009. By the end of the year, that pile is expected to triple in size to around 75,000 tons, with equal amounts expected to be generated in each of the next couple of years. “We’re technically not in the mulch ...

  • Commercialisation options for biomass energy technologies in ESCAP countries

    Biomass provides the basic energy requirements for cooking and heating in rural households and for processes in a variety of traditional industries in developing countries. In general, biomass energy uses in such cases are characterised by low efficiency. Potentially, efficiency improvements of existing energy systems could increase the energy supply from biomass substantially. Also, wide ranges ...

  • The feasibility of producing alcohol fuels from biomass in Australia

    Apart from cost, the net production of energy is the most important factor in evaluating the feasibility of producing renewable fuels from woody biomass. Unlike sugar, the effort required to make woody materials fermentable is considerable, and has been a major barrier to the use of such materials to produce renewable fuels. The Energy Profit Ratio (EPR) of fossil fuels is declining rapidly as ...
