Multiple biomass conversion pathways have been tried at commercial scales (e.g., hydroprocessing) as described in this part. A lot of research and development is in progress for converting biomass into hydrocarbon fuels and intermediates leading to “drop-in” fuels. For instance, the conversion pathways as described by the U.S. Bioenergy Technologies Office1 are: the Biological Conversion of Sugars to Hydrocarbons; Catalytic Upgrading of Sugars to Hydrocarbons; Algal Lipid Upgrading; Whole Algae Hydrothermal Liquefaction; Fast Pyrolysis Upgrading and Hydroprocessing; Ex-situ Catalytic Fast
