Biomass Energy SystemEnvoland sunflower

Biomass is biological material derived from living or recently living organisms.

As an energy source, biomass can either be used directly via combustion to produce heat, or indirectly after converting it to various forms of biofuel.

Conversion of biomass to biofuel can be achieved by different methods which are broadly classified into: thermal, chemical, and biochemical methods.

FACT

“Biomass is the most widely renewable energy used, and counts for about two-thirds of all the world's renewable energy applications. ”

Background

As technology becomes more advanced, we can use different methods that are even more energy efficient in converting, such as gasification and anaerobic decomposition of biomass to generate energy.

Oil prices have not risen as they have done in the past and little attention has been paid to biomass, mainly because too little heat is generated by the combustion of biomass and has a  low energy density.

The biomass combustion generated heat value is low, but because of low fuel prices, it is quite suitable for home, commercial and industrial heating purposes. These do not require high temperatures, so expensive fuel is not required.

Looking at the possible future potential of various renewable energy sources, biomass energy fulfils the basic requirement of future energy needs, e.g. remote areas. Biomass is the most widely renewable energy used, and counts for about two-thirds of all the world's renewable energy applications.
