  • Biomass-fired fuel cells

    The results are presented of a techno-economic analysis of systems integrating biomass gasification plant with phosphoric acid and molten carbonate fuel cells. The cases studied relate to the generation of electricity at a scale of 500 kWe. At this level, the plant would be suitable for small-scale commercial or industrial application and would allow for the export of surplus electricity. The ...

  • 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 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 ...

  • Fuel for Schools: A Biomass Success Story

    On our blog, you have learned about different types of biofuel, the process for creating biofuel, and the global benefits of using biomass technology. Now it’s time to see all of this information put into practice. Different areas of the country have supported a program called Fuel for Schools, which encourages the use of renewable, local resources to provide heat to schools. ...

  • Woody Biomass as renewable energy source

    In-depth analysis in Minnesota assesses the feasibility and cost-effectiveness of regional biomass generated electricity projects that tap into local feedstocks. The Center for Energy and Environment (CEE) in Minneapolis, Minnesota undertook a multiphase research project to create a framework that communities and legislators can use to determine the feasibility of biomass-generated electricity in ...

  • The recent development of biomass energy in India: an overview

    This paper presents the current status and use of Biomass Technologies (BTs) in India. Different technology routes such as gasification, combustion and cogeneration are being actively developed to promote conversion of biomass materials such as agricultural, forestry and agro-industrial residues into electric power. The promotion of scientifically designed models of wood/biomass fired efficient ...

  • Biomass Bio Fuel Advantages over Fossil Fuels

    The human race has undergone a lot of changes through the millennia. Most of the advances in technologies have done in just the last couple of hundred years. The discovery of oil, gas and petroleum as energy sources changed ...


  • Following the fuel: How portable biomass energy generation may help rural communities

    The forests that surround many of California’s mountain communities tend to have an abundance of woody biomass and a pressing need for thinning to reduce fire danger. Revenue from selling forest residues to biomass power plants could help to support fuel reduction activities, but in many cases the nearest plant is so far away that hauling costs are prohibitive. The remoteness of such ...

  • Meeting the world’s growing energy needs - a strategic perspective

    Clarence P. Cazalot, Jr., President & CEO of Marathon Oil Corporation, participated in a CEO Dialogue on The Future of Energy at GLOBE 2010. The focus of that Dialogue was on Leadership in the energy sector, which is perhaps more vital than in any other industrial sector in the global transformation to a lower-carbon economy. This article is a concise overview of the points Mr. Cazalot made ...
