The most commonly used conversion methods – combustion of waste to produce heat or electricity; anaerobic digestion to produce methane for heat or power production etc. all are well-established and commercial technologies. A further set of conversion processes – for example, the production of liquid fuels from cellulosic materials by biological or thermochemical conversion processes, such as pyrolysis – are at earlier stages of commercialisation or still under development.

Biochar is a charcoal-like substance produced from agriculture and forest wastes which contains 70% carbon. It is used as soil enhancer to increase fertility, prevent soil degradation and to sequester carbon in the soil. Biochar can store carbon in the soil for as many as hundreds to thousands of years. Biochar can be produced through pyrolysis, gasification and hydrothermal carbonization, which leaves bio-oil and syngas as by-products. Small scale production can be through pyrolysis using modified stoves and kilns which are low cost and relatively simple technologies.

The Global Environment Centre Foundation (GEC) is an entity that supports the UNEP’s International Environmental Technology Centre (IETC), based in Japan. GEC is dedicated to the transfer of environmentally sound technologies, in both developing countries and countries with economies in transition. The foundation aims to contribute to Japan’s international efforts on the environment, sharing project collaborations as well as promoting Japan’s rich conservation knowledge and experience in developing nations.
A multimedia fluidized bed pyrolysis process have been developed that takes any biomass feedstock (grass softwood hardwood) and converts it directly into biogasoil in one step. The biogasoil can be processed directly to hydrocarbons or blended with petroleum gas oil to be processed into gasoline diesel and light hydrocarbon fuels. Our invention is the first of its kind that does not have to go through a biooil upgrading process to be converted into hydrocarbons.
Background: Proton exchange membrane fuel cells (PEMFC) are the best candidates for cars buildings and other small applications. The advantage of these types of fuel cells is that they can operate at relatively low temperatures and can vary their output to meet shifting power demands. Market potential is high because of fuel cells’ abilities as portable generators and batteries in military and other applications as off-grid power systems for homes and businesses and in powering automobiles.
Method to Increase Calorific Content and Enhanced Nutritional Value of Plant Biomass for the Production of Fuel and FeedType:Product
Background: Production of alternative fuels such as biodiesel is on the rise around the world and in the U.S. due to a strong and growing desire to reduce dependency on petroleum-derived diesel fuel. The acceptance of biodiesel has been slowed due to its higher cost relative to petroleum-derived diesel. The higher cost of biodiesel is directly related to the cost of feedstock used for biodiesel production which is often derived from crops also used for food.
Straw feedstuff is the use of advanced cold forming technology a new feedstuff by briquetting machine production. This feedstuff was massive density and easy to transport and storage it is a strong practicality. Straw gasification of straw gasification broadly referred to as 'biomass gasification' means the combustion of biomass in the anoxic condition the occurrence of chemical reactions to generate high-grade easy to transport the use of high efficiency fuel gas.

Shifting towards a well-regulated, sustainable supply of wood-based fuels usually requires a marked change in perception, behavior and commitment by various stakeholders. The paper outlines stakeholders’ potential roles, functions and responsibilities in reform and gives recommendations for the promotion and sustenance of a vibrant biomass energy sector.
