If you can get the content of your BufferedImage as an InputStream or 
byte[] array (sorry I don't know that API), then you can pass it along 
as view data in sendPage(), and serve it up with the standard 
ResourceReader and the ModuleSource:

=== flowscript: ===

var imageInputStream = ...
cocoon.sendPage("image-pipeline", {imageInputStream:imageInputStream});

==== sitemap: ===

<map:match pattern="image-pipeline">
   <map:read src="module:flow-attr:imageInputStream"
             mime-type="image/jpeg" />
