Title: Opportunities for using wood and biofibers for energy, chemical feedstocks, and structural applications

Author: Winandy, J. E.; Williams, R. S.; Rudie, A. W.; Ross, R. J.;

Date: 2008

Source: Properties and performance of natural-fibre composites. Cambridge, England : Woodhead Publishing, Ltd. ; Boca Raton, FL : CRC Press, 2008. Woodhead Publishing in materials: Pages [330]-355.

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: This chapter describes 'integrated biomass technologies', a systematic approach for maximizing value, performance, resource sustainability, and profitability in the agriculture and forest products industries. The fundamental principles of integrated biomass technologies provide a global roadmap to a bio-based economy based on the systematic use of many less-desirable lignocellulosic resources to produce liquid biofuels and chemical feedstocks, advanced biocomposites, and advanced structures. This switch in approach to meeting user needs will lead to a bio-based society using sustainable technologies rather than a society based on the use of nonrenewable, non-sustainable resources.

Keywords: Value added, biomass conversion, feedstocks, forest products industry, energy conservation, renewable energy sources, renewable natural resources, utilization, biomass energy, biomass, fuelwood, alcohol, sustainable forestry, lignocellulose, building materials, integrated biomass technologies, biorefining, biomass fuel, wood as fuel, forest resources, ethanol, chemical utilization, economic aspects
