The increasing concern for emissions and pollutants from power generation plants has increased the desire for and the study of biomass fuels. Biomass combustion produces less carbon monoxide as well as other greenhouse gases. Black liquor is a byproduct from the Kraft process in making paper.

Steam reformers have a much higher efficiency but they are a relatively new science and are not as reliable. One of the ...
