Abstract
This master thesis is written at the faculty of engineering at Lund University in collaboration with IKEA Industry. The aim is to analyze the potential in electricity production from excess wood biomass coming from production. The available biomass varies in form, quantity, size and moisture content. Various technologies, handling different kind of feedstock for electricity production were investigated. The focus during this work lied on gasification of biomass.

The purpose is to give an overview over which technologies would have the best match with IKEA Industry’s feedstock. Electrical efficiency, technology maturity, initial investment cost and feedstock match were into account.
