Book Description :

Bioenergy is energy derived from biomass which includes biological material such as plants and animals, wood, waste, (hydrogen) gas, and alcohol fuels. In essence bioenergy is the utilisation of solar energy that has been bound up in biomass during the process of photosynthesis. Bioenergy is a renewable energy that can generate many additional benefits, the extent of which depends on a combination of factors including the types of feedstocks used, how they are produced and transported and the efficiency of the technologies deployed to convert them to bioenergy.

Book Description :

Zambia is richly endowed with a wide range of biomass sources including woodlands, forests, agricultural residues and livestock waste. Biomass energy contributes supplies over 70 percent of the country’s energy needs. Due to the current extraction and consumption methods, the use of biomass energy has been linked with detrimental environmental effects such as deforestation and forest degradation as well as climate change, due to the loss of carbon sinks. Inefficient utilisation of biomass contributes significantly to deforestation which is estimated at between 79 000 – 150 000 ha per year, and negatively affects the health and income of rural households that depend on forest products for their livelihoods. Sustainable bioenergy strategies and alternative bioenergy solutions need to be defined and integrated into current efforts of the country to increase stable and sustainable access to energy. This report assesses the country context and defines which bioenergy options can be viable considering a number of solutions for electricity production, cooking fuels and transport fuels at the provincial and district level. Possible options originating from crop residues, livestock residues and forest plantation harvesting residues are identified, having netted out agriculture and forestry needs. The assessment now needs to be followed by local verification and investment to deploy an initial set of bioenergy projects and test the findings on the ground.

Book Description :

An overview of the prevailing institutional framework related to bioenergy and associated policies opens this roadmap, followed by a description of the wider context of bioenergy supply and consumption in Georgia. The body of the roadmap focuses on: Ensuring sustainable biomass supplies Modernising the consumption of biomass. Current Georgian practices are summarised for these two areas, and examples of international best practices in bioenergy from IEA member countries are offered. The roadmap then outlines the policies, technologies and management practices needed for Georgia to harness its biomass potential securely and sustainably. These are presented as a set of overarching policy actions, underpinned by detailed biomass supply and consumption recommendations. The recommended actions are compiled as a co-ordinated package of measures to be implemented during 2020-25 to modernise Georgia's bioenergy industry and make it sustainable by 2030. The social, economic and environmental benefits for the country are summarised as a vision of Georgia's modern bioenergy industry in 2030.

Book Description :

This book is written for scientists and practitioners interested in deepening their knowledge of the sustainable production of bioenergy from wood in tropical and sub-tropical countries. Utilising the value chain concept, this book outlines the necessary aspects for managing sustainable bioenergy production. A wide range of topics is covered including biomass localization, modelling and upscaling, production management in woodlands and plantations, and transport and logistics. Biomass quality and conversion pathways are examined in order to match the conversion technology with the available biomass. A section is dedicated to issues surrounding sustainability. The issues, covered in a life-cycle assessment of the bioenergy system, include socio-economic challenges, local effects on water, biodiversity, nutrient-sustainability and global impacts. Through this holistic approach and supporting examples from tropical and sub-tropical countries, the reader is guided in designing and implementing a value chain as the main management instrument for sustainable wood.

Book Description :

This book focuses on biogas production by anaerobic digestion, which is the most popular bioenergy technology of today. Using anaerobic digestion for the production of biogas is a sustainable approach that simultaneously also allows the treatment of organic waste. The energy contained in the substrate is released in the form of biogas, which can be employed as a renewable fuel in diverse industrial sectors. Although biogas generation is considered an established process, it continues to evolve, e.g. by incorporating modifications and improvements to increase its efficiency and its downstream applications. The chapters of this book review the progress made related to feedstock, system configuration and operational conditions. It also addresses microbial pathways utilized, as well as storage, transportation and usage of biogas. This book is an up-to-date resource for scientists and students working on improving biogas production.

Book Description :

The potential of modern bioenergy to supplement traditional fuels and reduce greenhouse gas emissions has put it front and center in the plan to replace conventional fossil-based fuels with renewables. While much has been written about biomass supply chains, conversion technologies, or techno-economic analysis of different biofuel production pathways, little attention has been paid to the role that bioenergy production and consumption will have in sustainable development. What are the synergies and trade-offs between bioenergy use and the UN Sustainable Development Goals? In order to minimize the potential risks, we need to understand interdisciplinary dimensions such as government policies, financing schemes, stakeholders’ engagement, and inter-sectoral linkages while devising sustainable bioenergy strategies. Innovation in the transition towards modern bioenergy systems will only be possible if we consider a participatory approach, people's behavior, and societal needs. “Assessing the Modern Bioenergy Potential and Strategies for Sustainable Development” presents a clear illustration of the challenges involved, as well as possible solutions, in the drive towards using modern bioenergy and strategies for sustainable development.

The potential of bioenergy production from cocoa pods residues and cashew peduncle residues using two pathways - anaerobic digestion and hydrothermal carbonization processes was evaluated. Mono digestion of cashew peduncle is only possible up to an organic loading rate (OLR) of 3.0 kgVS/m3.day in a semi-continuous reactor. However digestion of cashew bagasse and cocoa pods were stable up to an OLR of 4.0 kgVS/m3.day. Using surface response models, the effect of process temperature, reaction time and heating rate on the yield, heating value and ash content of the hydrochar was studied.eng

Book Description :

The increasing importance of biomass as a renewable energy source has led to an acute need for reliable and detailed information on its assessment, consumption and supply. Responding to this need, and overcoming the lack of standardised measurement and accounting procedures, this best-selling handbook provides the reader with the skills to understand the biomass resource base, the tools to assess the resource, and explores the pros and cons of exploitation. This new edition has been fully updated and revised with new chapters on sustainability methodologies. Topics covered include assessment methods for woody and herbaceous biomass, biomass supply and consumption, land use change, remote sensing techniques, food security, sustainability and certification as well as vital policy issues. The book includes international case studies on techniques from measuring tree volume to transporting biomass, which help to illustrate step-by-step methods. Technical appendices offer a glossary of terms, energy units and other valuable resource data.
