Gasification is the most likely technology to be implemented for hydrogen and syngas production from biomass in the short- to medium-term. The main reason for this readiness is the huge expertise gathered in developed coal gasification. However, its industrial application is still hampered due to some drawbacks that need to be overcome. This chapter reviews biomass gasification in depth. Different feedstock and their availability, the process and underlying chemistry, and ...
