Publisher Summary This chapter discusses the effective utilization of woody biomass for electricity production. A small-scale fuel cell with gasifier is one of the promising technologies for utilizing woody biomass. The reduction in primary energy consumption and CO2 emission by use of woody biomass in a fuel cell with gasifier is compared with that in a co-firing system. Sawmill wastes, pruned fruit tree branches, pruned road-side tree branches, and fallen leaves and branches in forests around… CONTINUE READING
