Lignin would generally have lower oxygen and higher carbon compared to cellulose or hemicellulose. Peat is in the biomass region but toward the carbon corner, implying that it is like a high-carbon biomass. Peat, incidentally, is the youngest fossil fuel formed from biomass. Coal resides further toward the carbon corner and lies close to the oxygen base in the ternary diagram, suggesting that it is very low in oxygen and much richer in carbon. Anthracite lies furthest toward the carbon corner because it has the highest carbon content.

Unlike carbohydrate or starch, ligno-cellulose is not easily digestible by humans. For example, we can eat the rice, which is a carbohydrate, but we cannot digest the husk or the straw, which are ligno-cellulose. Ligno-cellulosic biomass is not part of the human food chain, and therefore its use for biogas or bio-oil does not threaten the world’s food supply. A good example of ligno-cellulosic biomass is a woody plant—that is, any vascular plant that has a perennial stem above the ground and is covered by a layer of thickened bark.

6 Brief Description of Gasification and Related Processes 25 biomass or coal. For the latter source, the hydrocarbon is hydrogenated to produce synthetic gas, or substitute natural gas (SNG). The overall reaction for SNG production may be expressed as C + 2H 2 → CH 4 − 74, 800 kJ kmol More details on these reactions are given in Chapters 5 and 9. 1 Introduction The characteristics of biomass greatly influence the performance of a biomass gasifier. A proper understanding of the physical and the chemical properties of biomass feedstock is essential for the design of a biomass gasifier to be reliable.
