Supercritical Water Gasfication (SCWG) of biomass is a method of producing potentially carbon neutral fuel and chemical feedstock from waste biological material. In this process water is used as a reacting medium which makes it well suited for very wet biomass and so is a promising alternative to standard gasification processes which would require extensive drying in these cases.
