Abstract

Biomass use, both for electric and thermal energy production in higher power plants, has spread in recent times, due to the presence of several positive aspects. A large amount of residual biomass is available, due to residual product from pruning, forest maintenance and food chain. There are many ways to generate energy from these biomasses, through direct fired boilers for thermal energy production, or associating turbines for the generation of electrical power (cogeneration systems), and adsorption plants for the production of cooling power (trigeneration systems). The present paper resumes the state of the art of the available technologies for residual biomasses conversion to thermal and electrical power. Moreover data about the biomass availability in Basilicata (South Italy) region and a study about a project for both biomass collection and energy conversion are shown.
