To be transformed into higher value energy products, biomass is refined through one or more steps. Conditioning refers to processes such as drying, milling, and chipping to reduce the feedstock size, making it easier to handle and increase its energy density. During conversion, biomass is decomposed using mechanical, thermal, chemical, biochemical or electrochemical processes then refined into a bioenergy product such as a liquid biofuel or biogas suitable for use.
We have developed a series of Factsheets on key bioenergy topics and will continue to develop and provide resources to support and inform industry, government and the public of the opportunities, innovations and developments in the advanced bioenergy industry.
