  • 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, ...

  • Life cycle assessment of fuel production for biomass from dry land afforestation

    Biomass has been focused as a fuel resource because of its huge abundance and carbon–neutral characteristics. Thus, we attempted to use tree biomass as the resource to automotive fuel. From the global warming point of view, the biomass energy production from large–scale plantation is required, however, the land use should not be changed from crop field or forest land. In the present paper, the ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • Advanced Application of Product Gases of Thermal Conversion of Biomass and Waste; Integration With the Fischer-Tropsch Synthesis

    The Netherlands Energy Research Foundation (ECN) is studying the advanced application of product gases from the thermal conversion of biomass and waste (B&W). The Fischer-Tropsch (FT) synthesis is the most promising as it affords diesel-like fuels of high quality and free from sulfur and aromatics. A slurry bubble FT reactor with an iron catalyst is the most suitable for B&W syngases. To optimize ...

  • Biomass and Integration in Future Energy Systems and the Bioeconomy

    Biomass was the primary source of materials and energy until the industrial revolution set off a series of major changes around two hundred years ago. In the industrialized world fossil fuels became the primary source for energy in the forms of electricity and heat and provided almost all fuels for transport. However, biomass continued to maintain an important role in the economies in both ...

  • What Makes Biomass a Sustainable Energy Source?

    “Sustainability” is a major buzzword in the energy sector. In the face of climate change, national governments and global organizations like the United Nations continue to encourage the use of sustainable energy sources. In this blog, we’ll examine what makes biomass sustainable, specifically plant-derived biomass like wood pellets. Sustainable Resources: Wood ...
