This chapter reviews a variety of biomass conversion technologies including thermo-chemical liquefaction and biological conversion technologies for producing clean and green fuels, that is, biooil, H2, and CH4. First, each biomass conversion technology is briefly described in terms of conversion process, feed stock, and conversion efficiency. Then, the characteristics of products from each biomass conversion technology are discussed. In addition, efforts that are also being made for improving the conversion efficiency for each process are introduced. Finally, utilization of biomass conversion products is described and introduced. Thus this chapter contributes to better understanding of the fundamentals and potentials of the various biomass conversion technologies.
