This book available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle Format. Biomass to Energy Conversion Technologies: the road to commercialization examines the background to biomass production, biomass types, properties and characterization, and energy conversion technologies with emphasis on the production of a gaseous fuel to supplement the gas derived from the landfilling of organic wastes (landfill gas) and used in gas engines to produce electricity. The book discusses the integration of both fermentation and anaerobic digestion, in a biorefinery concept, which allows the production of ethanol along with that of biogas, which can be used to produce heat and electricity, thus improving the overall energy balance. The main studies on the combination of both bioethanol and biogas production processes are reviewed and the strength and weakness of the integrated treatment for industrial application are highlighted. It also considers gasification technologies and their potential for biomass gasification. The book also lists the advantages and the disadvantages of using of biomass as a source of energy, the path of commercialization of the various processes, energy related environmental issues. It includes case studies based on projects worldwide and discusses the risks and challenges. Highlights the commercialization and technological risks Discusses challenges, limitations and future prospects of the third- and fourth generation biofuels Includes integration of both fermentation and anaerobic digestion in a biorefinery concept Discusses energy related environment issues (Greenhouse effect, acid rain, air pollution)
