The applications of gasification products comprise impending use as process output that can be converted into mechanical, electrical and/or heat energy use in several industries and sectors including rural households. Different types of agricultural and forestry residues, energy crops, dairy-house, piggery, poultry, domestic and industrial wastes can be used as feedstock. There is a tremendous potential of work involving thermo-chemical and bio-chemical processes and the characterization of their products. With or without pre-treatment, the feedstock biomass can be gasified under different technological conditions viz. in bio-chemical digester (biogas plant) or in thermal digester (gasifiers), to find out what are the most suitable conditions for maximum energy outputs.
