Abstract: Technologies to produce electricity from biomass through combustion are state of the art. There are many applications with different power generation principle (steam turbine, steam screw type engines, ORC turbines) in operation. Caused by the logistic frame conditions of biomass production, storage and transportation as well as the possibility to use the thermal energy for community heating, decentralized power plants are the most economically solutions. Similar statuses have the biochemical conversion technologies (e.g. biogas technologies) or the physical-chemical conversion technologies like the production of plant oils and the power generation of the liquid/gaseous fuels in internal combustion engines. All these technologies are highly developed and reached readiness for marketing in Europe as well as in Asian countries.
