Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book presents a selection of thermo-chemical technologies for conversion of biomass, not only to produce heat and power, but also intermediate products such as syngas and bio-oils.  Part one provides an introduction to biomass supply chains and feedstocks, and outlines the principles of biomass combustion for power generation. Chapters also describe the categorization and preparation of biomass feedstocks for combustion and gasification. Part two explores biomass combustion and co-firing, including direct combustion of biomass, biomass co-firing and gasification, fast pyrolysis of biomass for the production of liquids and intermediate pyrolysis technologies. Later sections focus on largescale biomass combustion and biorefineries and large-scale biomass combustion plants, key engineering issues and plant operation. The concluding chapter looks at the role of biorefineries in increasing the value of the end-products of biomass conversion.

Synopsis:

Part one provides an introduction to biomass, supply chains and feedstocks. The contributors discuss principles of biomass combustion for power generation and biomass supply chains and the categorization and preparation of biomass feedstocks for combustion and gasification. Part two goes on to explore biomass combustion and co-firing, with direct combustion of biomass, biomass co-firing and gasification, fast pyrolysis of biomass for the production of liquids, and intermediate pyrolysis of biomass all considered. The final section focuses on large-scale biomass combustion and biorefineries.

Synopsis:

Biomass utilization represents an increasingly important source of low or zero carbon power generation. Developments in the fuel flexibility of conventional power plants allow for both direct biomass combustion and biomass co firing with fossil fuels. Advanced conversion technologies can also be integrated into existing power plants, or applied in new power plants, allowing a wide range of biomass feedstocks to be converted into more readily combustible fuel for use in either clean power generation or alternative fuel production. The editor and contributors present a comprehensive review of biomass combustion, conversion and utilization, a significant contribution to the field of bioenergy.
