The current situation of the process for effectively refining biomass to green chemicals is introduced and the development direction of biorefinergy technology is prospected. The latest technologies for converting biomass into green chemicals are reviewed. The microwave radiation technology is highlighted. Using the microwave to produce the green chemicals not only can reduce the environment pollution and collect all the products, but also can generate green chemicals efficiently and directly, such as bio-oils, acetic acids, furfurals, phenol, high performance activated carbon, soil amendments, and so on.
