Development of large-scale biomass gasification in the U.S. is in between demonstration and commercial scale, but a few companies are overcoming the challenges to make large-scale projects happen.
The nation's two largest waste-to-energy companies discuss how they have reduced emissions and increased efficiencies.
A 2009 NREL assessment of biomass combustion and gasification technologies may not have spurred rapid commercial development, but it has encouraged state investment in demonstration projects.
India's biomass gasification sector is growing by leaps and bounds, seemingly at all levels, and it's raising hope for the establishment of electricity in rural villages.
