Biomass Conversion: Emerging Technologies, Feedstocks, and Products
This report describes the principal steps in the biomass system: (1) growing and harvesting (or collecting), (2) processing into feedstock, (3) conversion into sugar and other intermediate products, (4) conversion into energy and other final products, (5) distribution of these products, and (6) their use as biofuels, power, and other biobased products. The technical and economic viability of this complex system relies on a reliable feedstock supply, efficient conversion technologies and distribution systems, and effective demand and markets for the byproducts and final energy products.
