we used to produce energy from biomass arethree main categories:energy conversion technologies-o Combustiono Gasificationo Pyrolysis
Primary energy conversion technologies Combustion - direct combustion of biomass is the most common way ofconverting biomass to energy - both heat and electricity. Compared to the gasificationand pyrolysis it is the simplest and most developed. Gasification - gasification is a high-temperature (1200-1400 Degree Celsius)thermochemical conversion process but the process is used for production of gas, instead ofheat. Pyrolysis - thermal decomposition occurring in the absence of oxygen. We usepyrolysis to produce a liquid fuel, bio-oil or pyrolysis oil.
Biofuel Fossil fuelBio-fuel is produced directly from Fossil fuels are produced by eitherplant matter typically corn, sugar the decomposition of plant orcane, sugar beets, or cellulose animal matter over long periods oftransforming it into alcohol. time under certain conditions such as high temperature and pressure. Fossil fuels are coal, oil, and natural gas.
