We currently differentiate between gaseous, liquid and solid (wood-like) bioenergy and thus summarize the various bioenergy sources based on their respective aggregate state. The range extends from biogas and biomethane (gaseous) to biofuels such as biodiesel and bioethanol (liquid) to woody biomass energy sources such as wood pellets or wood chips (solid).
Each industry has its own processes and technologies for generating bioenergy sources and releasing bioenergy. The level of development and the dynamics of the individual markets are also very different in Germany and worldwide. Germany is one of the world market leaders in the field of biogas, belongs to the top 3 in the production of wood pellets (after the USA and Canada) and also occupies one of the leading positions within the international community when it comes to the use of biofuels.
Below you will find an article collection with selected BiomassMuse articles from previous years as an introduction to the individual energy sources.

Thanks to further research and technological advances, gaseous, liquid and solid energy from biomass will no longer be separated as strictly in the medium term as it is today. Above all, the gaseous energy sources will be able to be flexibly converted into the liquid state via liquefaction processes, and the wood-like energy sources will be converted using the pyrolysis and Hydrothermal carbonization be convertible into the gaseous or liquid state. The bioenergy family is moving closer together.
