What is biorefining?

Generating Power

The most common route from plant matter to power is burning it in a direct-fired system: the resulting steam turns turbines, generating electricity. Although it's not derived from a plant per se (it's a byproduct of decaying organic matter), methane gas can be used in biofuel production. Biofuels can also be used in the stead of petroleum fuels, powering cars as well as jet planes.
