Bioenergy conversion methods

The process to convert biomass solid raw material to fuel gas or chemical feedstock gas (syngas) is called gasification. Chemical conversion of gas would be expensive and there are microorganisms that can convert the CO, H(2), and CO(2) gas to fuels. The discovery of organisms which are capable of higher product yield, as metabolic engineering of microbial catalyst, will make this technology a viable option for reducing our dependency on fossil fuels. Different conversion methods are gas production, Pyrolysis , Anaerobic digestion, Biorefineries, Bioethanol production and sugar release from biomass. Production of energy crops could potentially compete for land with food cropping as demand for biomass increases. Biomass customers may be locked in long-term supply contracts with a single supplier making it difficult to get competitive pricing in the future. Alternative impacts are similar to those covered in the District Heating and Combined Heat and Power pages. The non-destructive pilot market is estimated to be valued at USD 12.98 Billion in 2015 and is projected to outstretch USD 18.88 Billion by 2020, at a CAGR of 7.78% from 2014 to 2020. A new Bioenergy International aimed at developing countries is now on the horizon.
