  • Researchers turn biomass into energy

    US scientists say they are testing the viability of converting leafy or woody biomass into a commercially feasible fuel product. University of Nevada-Reno Associate Professors Charles Coronella and Victor Vasquez are working on the pretreatment portion of the biomass conversion process as part of a $4.6 million study funded by the Gas Technology Institute.'Biomass produces a dirty gas if it's not ...

  • Global limits of biomass energy

    Biomass energy-energy generated from agricultural waste or specially grown energy crops-has been widely touted as a clean, renewable alternative to fossil fuels. Research is booming to improve energy crops and methods of converting crops to fuel. Already, Brazil gets 30% of its automotive fuel from ethanol distilled from sugar cane. But critics warn that "energy farming" will gobble up land ...

  • Biomass, an alternative for balancing the energy system

    Amid the upsurge in wind and solar projects, balancing power capacities are necessary. Biomass is a solution in this regard, being not only renewable, but also accessible, its vast untapped potential mainly coming from the agricultural land available in Romania. Following an increase of about 140 % in 2013 in terms of installed power capacities, projects using biomass and its derivatives, such ...

  • Invest in `green` biomass fuels

    With the right policies and investment in research, developing nations can turn their dependence on biomass fuels into a renewable and sustainable energy supply, says Duncan Macqueen. Fuels derived from biomass — mainly wood, but also plant and animal matter — produce lower greenhouse gas emissions than fossil fuels, and can be converted into heat, electricity, liquid or gas. Yet they ...

  • Future of biomass uncertain

    Industry experts have warned that building new facilities providing renewable energy from biomass in the UK has suddenly become uncertain as current legislation is having a significant impact on the financing of biomass facilities. The issue, which has seen the development of many new plants come to a halt, relates to the principle of ‘grandfathering’ of Renewable Obligation Certificates. ...

  • Will biomass be the saviour of coal?

    KEMA, an independent service provider to the energy industry, has prepared a White Paper on the use of biomass for energy production at existing coal-fired plants. Biomass co-firing is gaining increasing attention from both utilities and regulatory stakeholders. It offers renewable energy generation with low capital costs and takes advantage of the high electrical efficiencies of today"s coal ...

  • Getting biomass from A to B

    A key component of any biomass to energy chain is of course logistics, getting fuel feedstock from the production site to the end-user. For large users such as power stations or combined heat and power plants this can involve moving large volumes over long distances using a variety of transportation modes. And at World Bioenergy there are those specialised in providing these services. ...

  • Biomass Combustion Research

    The use of alternative combustion fuels that provide a renewable source of energy is a major area of research and investment. Sources of biomass fuels include virgin wood, energy crops, agricultural residues, food waste and industrial waste. Controlling the combustion process of any new fuel and keeping track of the biomass fuel emissions of combustion by-products is important to users of these ...

  • Polish biomass market on the move

    Poland plans to introduce a new law on renewable energies. Today, co-incinerating biomass in coal power plants is dominating. In the future, however, the support of smaller mono-incinerators and the use of CHP technology should be strengthened. This will lead to new opportunities to develop projects at industrial locations that produce large amounts of biomass. This is the result of an analysis ...
