Pyrolysis of Biomass
‘Biomass’ means the biodegradable fraction of products, waste and residues from biological origin from agriculture (including vegetal and animal substances), forestry and related industries including fisheries and aquaculture, as well as the biodegradable fraction of industrial and municipal waste.
Uses of biomass Energy
Biomass refers to raw organic material used to generate a number of energy resources, including heat, liquid or gaseous fuels, and electricity. Chemical energy stored in biomass can be converted to heat through combustion (burning). Biomass can be converted to liquid or gaseous fuels (by using Pyrolysis Process) or can be used to generate electricity in the same way that coal is used. The electricity generated can be sent to energy consumers via electric transmission systems. These applications can be at a small scale (e.g., to cook or make hot water in individual buildings) or at a large scale (e.g., to generate ethanol, biodiesel, biogas, or electricity for general distribution).
