Demand for biomass has been actively increasing over the years within the energy sectors as it brings significant economic gains. It has become the most reliable, sustainable, and permanent energy alternative to other traditional energy sources like propane gas or natural gas for various industries.
Many companies are driving efficiency by embracing the world of IoT. By implementing smart appliances and connected gadgets, companies are using high-tech sensors to amass massive amounts of real-time energy data and transmit it to the power grid – for advanced storage and analysis. Also, the development of new IoT-based concepts and tools for the intelligent management of the energy systems, with particular emphasis on thermal systems, has become one of the most pressing current renewable energy demands. Embedding advanced intelligence through Industry 4.0 and technologies like pelletization, torrefaction (solid products), and pyrolysis (bio-oils) are playing a significant role in transforming the biomass logistics and trade demands. Biomass gasification technologies integrated with biogas or solar-wind power can offer advanced alternatives for renewable energy production. Gasification, combined with various forms of gas cleaning, can also be applied by organizations to generate clean gaseous fuels from low-grade fuels such as different wastes and straw. And, the increase in consumption of this type of energy source will require the creation of information networks and data analysis, using technologies like AI, machine learning, and Big data that will support decision-making. In the coming years, deployment of both thermo-chemical and bio-chemical routes will witness more tractions to directly produce biofuels such as ethanol, methanol, and FT-diesel.
