Biomass Energy Technological Paradigm (BETP): Trends in This Sector
energy plays a significant role in the world for obvious environmental
and economic reasons with respect to the increasing energy crisis and
fossil fuel environmental problems. Biomass energy, one of the most
promising renewable energy technologies, has drawn increasing attention
in recent years. However, biomass technologies still vary without an
integrated framework. Considering the theory of a technological paradigm
and implementing a literature analysis, biomass technological
development was found to follow a three-stage technological paradigm,
which can be divided into: BETP (biomass energy technological paradigm)
competition, BETP diffusion, and BETP shift. Further, the literature
review indicates that waste, like municipal solid waste (MSW), has the
potential to be an important future trend in the world and
waste-to-energy (WTE) is designed for sustainable waste management.
Among WTE, anaerobic digestion has the potential to produce energy from
waste sustainably, safely, and cost-effectively. The new BETP
technological framework proposed in this paper may offer new research
ideas and provide a significant reference for scholars.
