Biomass Power Market Report and Forecast 2017–2022


Biomass gasification is the process in which solid fuels (biomass) such as wood, wood waste and agricultural residues get converted into combustible gas mixture referred to as producer gas or syngas. This is done through a sequence of thermo-chemical reactions using heat, pressure and partial combustion which occur when the air supply (O2) is less than adequate for the completion of the process of combustion of biomass. During 2009-2016, the global biomass power market grew at a CAGR of around 8%. The market is currently being driven by abundant availability of biomass or raw material, reduced dependency on fossil fuels, absence of harmful emissions and increase in focus on use of clean energy.
