COVID Resources. Reliable information about the coronavirus (COVID) is available from the World Health Organization (current situation, international travel).Numerous and frequently-updated resource results are available from this ’s WebJunction has pulled together information and resources to assist library staff as they consider how to handle . Biomass conversion is often accomplished either through biochemical or thermochemical methods, where the polysaccharides in cellulosic biomass are hydrolyzed by biochemical agents like cellulase enzyme, or by thermal treatment like gasification to produce simple sugars that are fermentable to produce biofuel products (Dwivedi et al., ). Biomass chemical conversion technologies used to be applied in the pulp and paper industry. As the problems of energy and environment arise, people pay much attention to the research and application of biomass. There are many biomass chemical conversion technologies, including combustion, carbonation, gasification, thermal decomposition, and.   Major thermal conversion route is include direct combustion to provide heat, liquid fuel and other elements to generate process heat for thermal and electricity generation is summaries in Fig. 2.

The following comments apply generally to biomass conversion, not just to lignocellulose conversion. Processing technologies that utilize microbes and enzymes have great potential for low cost biomass processing. Unlike most thermal and chemical processes, bioprocesses take place under relatively mild conditions of temperature and pressure. There have been many developments in the science and technology of thermo­ chemical biomass conversion since the previous conference on Advances in Thermochemical Biomass Conversion in Interlaken, Switzerland, in This fourth conference again covers all aspects of thermal biomass conversion. Thermochemical conversion of biomass can be performed via three primary pathways, i. e. combustion, gasification, and pyrolysis [1–3], Gasification is the partial oxidation of biomass to produce a synthesis gas (syngas), consisting primarily of CO, H 2 and CH 4 [4], Steam gasification enables thermal treatment under a reducing atmosphere that. The compositions of different biomass species and the chemical structures of the major components are also examined in the context of biomass as an energy resource and feedstock. The reactions that occur when carbon dioxide (CO 2) is fixed in live green biomass are photochemical and biochemical conversions that involve the uptake of CO 2.

This Special Issue aims to collect contributions describing scientific advancements in the development of renewable energy and chemical sources from thermal conversion of biomass waste, as this is an important issue to support a sustainable approach. Submission scopes can include: Thermal conversion of biomass waste for energy recovery.   Focusing on the conversion of biomass into gas or liquid fuels the book covers physical pre-treatment technologies, thermal, chemical and biochemical conversion technologies • Details the latest biomass characterization techniques • Explains the biochemical and thermochemical conversion processes • Discusses the development of integrated . The book covers the principles underlying pyrolysis of biomass from the chemical engineering perspective. It discusses thermal-only pyrolysis, the traditional pyrolysis process under inert atmosphere with no catalyst, and the role of catalytic pyrolysis and tail gas reactive pyrolysis in resolving the instability issues associated with product.
