From the conventional use of biomass in the form of heating to the modern day use of biomass in the form of electricity generation and biofuel production, biomass has always been part of the evolution of mankind. Modern day use of biomass is gradually becoming more complex, and engineering played an important role in defining different directions. This review provides an overall view of biomass utilization through thermal treatment including combustion, pyrolysis, and gasification. Efficient… 
The Influence of Fuel and Steam Consumption on Characteristics of Fixed Bed Process of Woody Biomass Steam Gasification with Intensive Heat Supply
Plant biomass is one of the most widespread renewable energy sources. Energy utilization of biomass allows solving some problems associated with the development of off-grid energy systems and the

A review on potential of biohydrogen generation through waste decomposition technologies
This article reviews various waste decomposition technologies composed of thermochemical and biochemical conversion routes for the generation of biohydrogen from biomass wastes. Due to the escalation
Ultrasonic-Assisted Upgrading of the Heavy Bio-Oil Obtained from Pyrolysis of Pine Nut Shells with Methanol and Octanol Solvents
Bio-oil from biomass is considered a promising fuel candidate due to its high energy density. The organic molecules in bio-oil (heavy bio-oil) that are highly viscous and corrosive are the main
Organic Waste Gasification: A Selective Review
This review considers the selective studies on environmentally friendly, combustion-free, allothermal, atmospheric-pressure, noncatalytic, direct H2O/CO2 gasification of organic feedstocks like


Combustion and Co-combustion of Biomass: Fundamentals, Technologies, and Primary Measures for Emission Reduction†
Since biomass is the only carbon-based renewable fuel, its application becomes more and more important for climate protection. Among the thermochemical conversion technologies (i.e., combustion,
NO reduction in decoupling combustion of biomass and biomass-coal blend
Biomass is a form of energy that is CO(2)-neutral. However, NO(x), emissions in biomass combustion are often more than that of coal on equal heating-value basis. In this study, a technology called
NO Emission Control during the Decoupling Combustion of Industrial Biomass Wastes with a High Nitrogen Content
Most industrial biomass wastes (IBW) are of high nitrogen content and likely to release high levels of NOx during the thermal utilization process. In the present study, two typical IBWs (sewage
