Biomass resources are limited by a number of constraints, including natural capital, competitive uses (for industrial use, paper production, and various energy uses) and sustainability requirements. While resources are limited, their energy use can have many different outputs (heat, electricity, liquid biofuel etc.) In order to improve the overall efficiency of the use of biomass as a primary energy resource, a research project has been carried on the efficiency of energy conversion of biomass fired...
