Biorefinery is a concept that embraces a wide range of technologies. Through biorefinery it is possible to separate biomass resources (wood, grasses, corn, ect.) into their building blocks (carbohydrates, proteins, fats ect.), which can be converted to value-added products (chemicals/materials) and energy (biofuels, power, heat).
A biorefinery is a facility that optimizes the integrated production of heat, power, transportation fuels, materials, chemicals, feed and food from biomass. By producing multiple products, a biorefinery can maximize the value derived from biomass feed stocks.
Making use of all the components in the biomass increases efficiency and reduces costs and waste output remarkably. Furthermore the technology is based on renewable resources and is a much cleaner product to use compared to fossil fuels.
Denmark is in the forefront with companies and research institutions contributing to the development of the technology. It is predicted that new biomass feed stocks can breed other desired compounds that could be easily extracted or separated.
Turning organic waste into energy Biomass – be it solid, liquid or gaseous – is the only renewable energy resource to replace fossil fuels directly. For decades, Denmark has utilised biomass to produce energy. Agricultural residue, wood...Read on about Bioenergy
