The article discusses the consideration of biomass conversion to energy and chemicals in the pulp and paper industry. A survey by Ernst & Young cited that according to an overwhelming number of industry executive, high energy costs will continue in the next five years due to the increasing electrical share of energy consumption. By 2020, the European Union (EU) will set mandatory targets of fewer carbon dioxide emissions and a 10% biofuel target of all motor fuels.
