The interest for renewable energies use for electric generation has claimed the attention on the development of innovative processes and systems for an efficient and economically sustainable employ of biomasses. The widely distributed availability of biomass involves the issue for a correct balance between high efficiency (and hence power size) plants and the costs for biomass transportation. At the present time, the green certificates available for short chain energy generation raised an high interest for...
