Biomass feedstocks: categorisation and preparation for combustion and gasification

L.S. Nikolaisen and P.D. Jensen,     Danish Technological Institute, Denmark

Abstract:

This chapter addresses the categorisation of biomass followed by the preparation and conditioning of biomass before combustion and gasification, which are the main technologies for heat and electricity generation. The physical and chemical characteristics are described for a range of types of biomass, together with selected examples of the common European standards for measuring biomass. The chapter addresses the problems and limitations of selected fuels and considers future trends for fuels such as mixed biopellets and the potential use of marine biomass.
