Descripción
The article presents the development of biomass in Chile within the country?s complex energy framework, which is still unable to strengthen and encourage renewable energy development and relies heavily on fossil fuels, increasing the latent risk of suffering an energy crisis in the medium term, due to the slow incorporation of new energy power plants that meet the growing energy demand forecast. This article provides a background of the energy situation in Chile, along with an analysis of the electricity market and its regulations, focusing on nonconventional renewable energy (NCRE), ending with the development of biomass in its three physical states and mentioning its features, applications, conversion processes, advantages and disadvantages. Chile presents a low share of renewable energies in its energy mix, in which solid and gaseous biofuels are mainly used for low power energy generation , through cogeneration and biogas extraction and use, respectively, while liquid biofuels are under investigation and development of pilot plants, conducted by several entities, for industrial production for the transport sector. Keywords: Chile, energy, biomass, environment, sustainability.
