3. Biomass conversion through syngas-based biorefineries : thermochemical process integration opportunities
Sammanfattning : The replacement of fossil resources through renewable alternatives is one way to mitigate global climate change. Biomass is the only renewable source of carbon available for replacing oil as a refining feedstock. Therefore, it needs to be utilized not just as a fuel but for both biochemical and thermochemical conversion through biorefining. LÄS MER
