This report from the Office of Technology Assessment (OTA) explores the energy potential and policy implications of biomass during the next 20 years and assesses the technology and the economic, environmental, and social impacts of bioenergy development. Biomass-wood and other plant materials-is a renewable source of gaseous, liquid, and solid fuels that has the potential to meet a significant portion of U.S. and world energy demands. This report considers combinations of possible biomass sources as well as bioconversion technologies and applications. Four biomass processes are described in detail: combustion and gasification of wood, anaerobic digestion of animal manure, conversion of crop residue, and production of gasohol. Those biomass combinations with the greatest potential for contributing to future energy supplies are identified, and policies to reduce or eliminate barriers to their commercialization are evaluated.

Most VitalSource eBooks are available in a reflowable EPUB format which allows you to resize text to suit you and enables other accessibility features. Where the content of the eBook requires a specific layout, or contains maths or other special characters, the eBook will be available in PDF (PBK) format, which cannot be reflowed. For both formats the functionality available will depend on how you access the ebook (via Bookshelf Online in your browser or via the Bookshelf app on your PC or mobile device).
