Converting these molecules to the jet fuel range of 10-12 carbon atoms results in a loss of yield. The two major biomass processing technologies employed are separation of biomass into chemical components, which are then separately converted to fuels and products (example: biomass to sugar to fuel) and conversion of whole biomass to fuels or chemicals through thermal and chemical routes.
