Abstract

Gasification of lignocellulosic biomass has attracted substantial current research interest. Various possible routes to convert biomass to fuels have been explored. In the present chapter, an overview of the gasification processes and their possible products are discussed. Gasification of solid biomass and steam and aqueous-phase reforming is discussed with a special emphasis on supercritical condition operations. The production of synthesis gas from biomass and its contaminants with their permissible limits are covered along with the cleanup and upgrading of the resulting syngas. The chapter ends with conclusions and an outlook for future opportunities and challenges.
