Bioenergy Carriers - From Smoothly Treated Biomass towards Solid and Gaseous Biofuels
Bioenergy carriers are used in different energy sectors. While the bioenergy supply from energy crops is limited, there is still reasonable unused potential from residues and waste. Improved qualities are necessary with regard to energy density, storability, energy content, flexible application, and related emissions. Especially solid and gaseous biofuels can be generated with reasonable effort and are suitable for utilizing the available waste and residual streams. These advanced bioenergy carriers can support the energy transition significantly, but need support for market introduction.
