Conversion Processes for Biofuel Production – Table of Contents

The variety of biofuel processing methods and equipment is remarkable, allowing us to transform energy feedstocks into useful solid fuels, liquid fuels, gases, electricity, heat or mechanical work. One of the main barriers to a successful biomass energy industry is the simple fact that most raw biomass is not immediately useful as an energy source. Biofuel crops must be processed in one way or another before they can be a valuable source of energy.
