The Illustrated Guide to Renewable Technologies BG 1/2008, By Kevin Pennycook, published by BSRIA in March 2008, states: ‘The use of biomass as a heat source for CHP systems has hitherto been restricted to large units (of several megawatts). The situation is changing with biomass CHP available with generating capacities of several hundred kilowatts. There are three main technologies available for biomass CHP. The first is grate combustion, which is the traditional approach for burning solid fuels. The second is fluidised-bed combustion. Both these approaches use the heat to produce power from a steam turbine. The third approach is gasification where combustible gases are extracted from the biomass source. The extracted gas can be used to fuel a range of prime movers including internal combustion engines.’
