As biomass is relatively clean, it can be used in such commercial businesses as airlines, meaning it is good for the environment and good for businesses.
Reduce Fossil Fuel Dependency With the majority of homes and businesses using oil to provide energy, the oil will gradually run out if people do not switch to a renewable energy source such as biomass. Once oil is gone, it is gone forever. The use of biomass will therefore reduce the dependency on fossil fuels.
No Harmful Emissions
Biomass energy creates no harmful carbon dioxide emissions. Many energy sources used today struggle to control their carbon dioxide emissions, as these can cause harm to the ozone layer and increase the effects of greenhouse gases, potentially warming the planet. It is completely natural, has no such carbon side effect in its use Disadvantages of Biomass Harmful to the environment Although there is a large reduction of carbon dioxide emissions compared to other systems, there is an increase in methane gases, which can also be harmful to the Earth's ozone layer. These methane gases can omit unpleasant smells that can possibly attract unwanted pests.
Cost of construction
Biomass power plants cost a minimum of a million dollars just for the equipment, even though a biomass power plant would decrease the amount of fossil fuels used it wouldn't make to much of a difference because only rich people can afford it Replant of plants: In order for biomass energy to be a renewable resource, crops have to be replanted in order to keep the process continually moving the process is sustainable as long as new plants continue to grow to replace the fuel used.
Sources for Biomass
1. Virgin wood
2. Energy crops
3. Agricultural residues 4. Food waste 5. Industrial waste and co-products Thermal Conversion Thermal conversion processes use heat as the dominant mechanism to convert biomass into another chemical form.
A range of chemical processes may be used to convert biomass into other forms, such as to produce a fuel that is more conveniently used, transported or stored, or to exploit some property of the process itself.
As biomass is a natural material, many highly efficient biochemi...
