A preliminary evaluation of biomass production and conversion technologies, and their associated environmental consequences is presented. Five categories of biomass production were considered in detail. Thermochemical and biochemical technology were considered for conversion processes. Regionalized scenarios were prepared using commercial scale plants processing appropriate regionalized feedstock. Most processes use heterogeneous solid waste as a feed stock which are believed to pose more severe control requirements for emissions and effluents than other biomass feedstocks. The environmental and socio-economic effects of locating large conversion plants in rural environments need to be studied.
