This book contains 80 peer reviewed papers from the SUPERGEN Bioten conference on biomass, bioenergy and biofuels 2010. It covers research which is being undertaken in the UK and includes some contributions from overseas. SUPERGEN Bioenergy is a consortium of 14 research organisations and 10 companies that have been cooperating for eight years carrying out research on all aspects of bioenergy chains based around thermal conversion processes.

Reports cover the following areas of activity: Biomass, Bioconversion, Biomass Systems, Pyrolysis, Gasification and Combustion
