Biomass is regarded as a most important renewable source of energy because it can be used as an alternative source for energy production. Natural sources for energy production are becoming extinct day by day. The main reason behind biomass energy production is that it can be produced from wood, plant and animal wastes, forestry wastes which indicate that biomass can be produced from those materials that are regarded as wasted materials which are again re-used and energy is produced. Biomass does not emit any harmful gases, produces clean energy, abundant and renewable, and reduces the usage of fossil fuels for energy production and also it can be used to create different products. The main reason behind biomass usage is it reduces emission of greenhouse gases.

Importance & Scope: Biomass is regarded as a most important renewable source of energy because it can be used as an alternative source for energy production. Natural sources for energy production are becoming extinct day by day. The main reason behind biomass energy production is that it can be produced from wood, plant and animal wastes, forestry wastes which indicate that biomass can be produced from those materials that are regarded as wasted materials which are again re-used and energy is produced. Biomass does not emit any harmful gases, produces clean energy, abundant and renewable, and reduces the usage of fossil fuels for energy production and also it can be used to create different products. The main reason behind biomass usage is it reduces emission of greenhouse gases.
Usage of biomass will grow within the coming years. The clean electricity generation will be enough for more than 17,000 UK householders a year and the usage of renewables for electricity generation in UK is increased by 60 per cent and the share of electricity is around 9.7 per cent in 2012 and 15.5 per cent in 2013. Around 3.9 million tonnes of biomass, mostly in the form of woodchips and pellets, were burnt to generate electricity during those 12 months. One tonne of pellets translates into two tonnes of greenwood. Usage of biomass will grow exponentially within coming years. The market value of electricity generated from biomass in the United States was over $45 billion in 2011. About 70% of all biomass in the world is used in the residential sector. 14% is used in industry and 11% is transformed into electricity, heat, or energy such as liquid fuel or biogas.

Track 1:Biomass Conversion Methods
Wind energy development has grown rapidly from past few years in order to meet the needs of people as an alternative source of energy. Predominantly, the production of biomass energy from various metamorphoses methods are invented and developed. Biomass transformation is the process of transforming biomass feedstock into the energy that can be pre-owned to generate heat and electricity. Bioenergy can be changed into power through thermo-chemical cycles i.e. combustion, gasification and pyrolysis or bio-chemical operations like anaerobic digestion. Renewable technologies have made up to 7% of electricity generated in 2010-this will arise as the UK aims to meet its EU target of generating 30% of its electricity from renewable sources by 2020.

Biomass is pre-treated and then transformed to synthesis gas via gasification. The resulting syngas is then cleaned preliminary to conversion to liquid biofuels, typically via Fischer Tropsch or the Mobil process. There are two main biomass-based liquid propellant in the market place today, ethanol and biodiesel. Some 20 Mm 3 y -1 of ethanol is produced with an energy content of 425 PJ, manufacturing this the second most important biofuel. A much smaller amount of biodiesel is used in the USA and Europe. Generally a tonne of cane produces between 125 and 140 kg of raw sugar, or between 70 and 80 litres of ethanol, although a tonne of maize, with about 70% to 75% starch content, will produce between 440 and 460 L t -1 with wet and dry corn crushing, respectively.

Track 3:Biomass Energy Resources
Agricultural biomass which could be pre-owned for energy production is defined as biomass residues from field agricultural crops and biomass from the concomitant of the processing of agricultural products. In the last decade, the demand for energy wood in Europe increased and experts anticipate a further increase in future due to socio-political changes. The largest renewable propellant used in Europe is wood which can be used in non-identical forms from sticks to pellets to sawdust. In some countries, like Poland and Finland, wood meets more than 80% of renewable-energy demand. Europe consumed 13m tonnes of wood pellets in 2012, corresponding to International wood Markets Group, a Canadian company.

Pyrolysis is the thermal decomposition of biomass occurring in the absence of oxygen. It is the fundamental chemical reaction that is the precursor of both the combustion and gasification processes and occurs naturally in the first two seconds. The products of biomass pyrolysis include biochar, bio-oil and gases including methane, hydrogen, carbon monoxide, and carbon dioxide. Depending on the thermal environment and the final temperature, pyrolysis will yield mainly biochar at low temperatures, less than 450 0C, when the heating rate is quite slow, and mainly gases at high temperatures, greater than 800 0C, with rapid heating rates. At an intermediate temperature and under relatively high heating rates, the main product is bio-oil.

Bioenergy is conversion of biomass resources such as agricultural and forest residues, organic municipal waste and energy crops to useful energy carriers including heat, electricity and transport fuels. Biomass is increasingly being used for modern applications such as dendro-power, co-generation and Combined Heat and Power generation (CHP). Depending on the resource availability and technical, economic and environmental impact, these can be attractive alternatives to fossil fuel based applications. Bioenergy, a renewable energy resource particularly suitable for electricity, heating & cooling in transport, will be at the core of this sectorial shift in renewable energy production and use and is expected to become the dominant form of RES before 2020.

Production of energy crops could potentially compete for land with food cropping as demand for biomass increases. Biomass customers may be locked in long-term supply contracts with a single supplier making it difficult to get competitive pricing in the future. Alternative impacts are similar to those covered in the District Heating and Combined Heat and Power pages. The non-destructive pilot market is estimated to be valued at USD 12.98 Billion in 2015 and is projected to outstretch USD 18.88 Billion by 2020, at a CAGR of 7.78% from 2014 to 2020.

Track 8:Production of Biofuels
Biofuels are previously a small but rapidly growing contributor to the transport fuels market. In 2005, global fuel ethanol manufacture was approximately 36,000 million litres and biodiesel approximately 4,000 million litres. This is sufficient to displace roughly 2% of global gasoline utilization and 0.3% of global diesel consumption. These amounts are modest but growing rapidly. It is typically acknowledged that bioenergy can make a serious contribution in meeting energy security and economic development goals, as well as helping to diminish GHG emissions. Increasing desire of electricity and environmental concerns has put the pressure on countries to increase the focus on renewable energy.

Track 9: Advanced Biofuels & Biochemicals
The two main alternative routes of second generation biofuels are Bio-chemical and Thermo-chemical. Second generation biofuels are expected to be preferable to many of the first generation biofuels in terms of energy balances, greenhouse gas emission reductions, land use compulsion, and competition for land, food, fibre and water. The potential raw material for second-generation biofuels management considered in this study are biomass from crops residues, other non-food energy crops, wood/forestry silt, and jatropha and algae. Advanced energy storage systems assist in maintaining power quality, distribution reliability, energy management, and improvement of grid efficiency.

Track 10:Renewable Energy
Renewable energy is energy that is generated from natural processes that are continuously replenished. This includes sunlight, geothermal heat, wind, tides, water, and various forms of biomass. This energy cannot be exhausted and is constantly renewed. Biomass, is a renewable organic matter, and can include biological material derived from living, or recently living organisms, such as wood, waste, and alcohol fuels.
Track 10-1 Waste energy
Track 10-2 Wood energy
Biofuels are fuels that can be processed from numerous types of biomass. First generation biofuels are processed from the sugars and vegetable oils formed in arable crops, which can be smoothly extracted applying conventional technology. In comparison, advanced biofuels are made from lignocellulosic biomass or woody crops, agricultural residues or waste, which makes it tougher to extract the requisite fuel. Advanced biofuel technologies have been devised because first generation biofuels manufacture has major limitations. First generation biofuel processes are convenient but restrained in most cases: there is a limit above which they cannot yield enough biofuel without forbidding food supplies and biodiversity. Many first generation biofuels rely on subsidies and are not cost competitive with prevailing fossil fuels such as oil, and some of them yield only limited greenhouse gas emissions savings. When considering emissions from production and transport, life-cycle assessment from first generation biofuels usually approach those of traditional fossil fuels. Advanced biofuels can aid resolving these complications and can impart a greater proportion of global fuel supply affordably, sustainably and with larger environmental interests.
