As fuel prices prompted concerns throughout the world and more about global warming increases, many researchers and policy makers look towards renewable energy sources. For the most part, the energy from natural sources is low impact, because the biological material can quickly restore through natural processes.
The main market began to move away from fossil fuels and biomass embrace a more responsible alternative. This field is gaining momentum and there are thousands of new eligible to create forms of energy friendly planet.
What is biomass energy?
Although only now gaining credibility and market share, biofuels are not new. In fact, the first man created by burning wood biomass energy. Biomass is biological material that can be used for industrial purposes. Coal and oil are not considered biomass because they change from fossil organic material by geological environment. When something organic like wood is used as fuel, the heat generated is biomass energy.
State Energy Biomass
Continued instability in the world oil market and the expected depletion of fossil fuels has created new interest in biomass energy in recent years. The concept of biofuels is not new, but it always has been dismissed in the past are less favorable. The rising cost of gasoline and heating oil has reduced the price difference. Considering the price of the record, adding biomass infrastructure has become more attractive. Proponents of biofuels argue that wider distribution ultimately lead to lower prices.
One area that is ripe for the development of biomass energy is the personal vehicle market. United States facing record gas prices, and many people have to change their travel habits. Biofuels such as bioethanol, biodiesel and vegetable oil can be used to feed a specially equipped vehicle. Continue reading “Introduction to Biomass”
