Overview This chapter focuses on bioenergy generation from biomass (mostly plant material), or bioenergy generation with a bioprocessing step that uses microbes, including yeast, algae, or bacteria, to convert inorganic or organic materials into an energy carrier. We predominantly discuss technologies that are already used at an industrial scale or that are very close to be implemented. It is important to note that we cannot be comprehensive—there are simply too many technologies that generate bioenergy. For instance, we do not discuss combustion of wood chips. On the other hand, we do discuss anaerobic gasification (anaerobic means without …
