Transcript of Biomass

Biomass
HOW DOES THIS WORK?
First of all, it is a renewable resource. Sunlight causes plants to grow, converting electromagnetic energy into chemical energy. This is biomass energy and is in all living things. For example, the corn stalks that are usually thrown away can be burned for biomass energy.
HOW CAN IT BE USED?
It can be converted into thermal energy. Then it can used to heat homes and also for cooking. Sadly, only about 4% of people use this and has been replaced by fossil fuels. On the other hand, although it's good for the environment, in the process of creating the energy pollution can go into the air from the burning or the trucks/plows exhaust.
HOW DO WE GET IT?
We can burn virgin wood, energy crops, agricultural residues, food waste, and also industrial waste and co-products. The best example of the energy crops are so beans and corn.

BIOMASS
IS IT EXPENSIVE?
No, biomass is not expensive. In fact, you can spend 1/3 less every year to heat your home using biomass rather than fossil fuels doing the same exact thing.
