Evaluation of energy recovery potential of a biorefinery

Evaluation of energy recovery potential of a biorefinery

The concept of biorefineries, where biomass is used to produce various products (e.g. transportation fuels, electricity, different chemicals), is considered an integral part of the process of reducing the dependency of fossil fuels.
