What is the smallest installation that can run on biomass?

Technically, it can be used in any installation; financially we agree that a certain size would be required: this depends in part on how and for what purpose bio-oil will be used.
We believe electricity generation becomes profitable at 1 MW electric, and for heating at about 3 MW thermal capacity.  Only at these power levels will it be possible to earn back the additional costs for conversion from preliminary fuel treatment systems and burners.
