Biomass resources, fuel preparation and utilization for improving the fuel flexibility of advanced power plants

L. Rosendahl,     Aalborg University, Denmark


This chapter addresses aspects of using biomass rather than biomass fuels. The concept of CO2 neutrality is discussed, followed by classification of biomasses relevant for power plant use. A brief discussion of conversion technologies is given, as it applies to choice of fuels, followed by issues of biomass resource availability. The chapter also contains chemical and physical characteristics of a variety of biomasses and biomass mixes, as well as a discussion of pretreatment and fuel preparation technologies.
