Individual Design of Biorefineries

By utilizing different processing technologies, components of biomass can be separated and isolated for the production of energy fuels, chemicals and materials, which is called biorefining.

The ultimate design of a particular biorefinery will depend upon the nature of the local feedstock:
  1. forest (forest and pulp mill residues)
  2. agricultural (controversial)
  3. municipal (waste can be turned into valuable new products)
  4. marine and combinations thereof (sludge...)
  5. and the targeted outputs.
