Biomass \ Biofuel
Biomass is used to refer to any type of biological resource. Today it is drawing keen attention as an eco-friendly renewable energy source. In particular, waste-derived biomass, including scrap wood from forestry and construction, rice straw, rice husk, animal waste, kitchen waste, and sewage sludge, is generated annually in the volume of millions of tons, bearing great potential as a resource.
Biomass usually has been incinerated for heat recovery or simply disposed of without undergoing any treatment. Foreign countries are strengthening efforts to use more biomass energy, while Japanese government agencies are encouraging the development of biomass technology and implementing a wide variety of biomass energy utilization projects under its new-energy initiative. Among the various types of biomasses, wood biomass is highly renewable because in its production, carbon dioxide is immobilized during the process of photosynthesis. Further, being carbon neutral, wood biomass can effectively reduce greenhouse gases, compared with fossil resources.
Biomass is organic material that can be converted into usable energy.
Biomass can contribute significantly to the construction of a sustainable society if converted into useful materials such as energy and chemical products.
Biomass refers to biological raw materials. It can be converted into a variety of chemical products, including fuels and biodegradable plastic products. Since plant grow by absorbing CO2, effectively becoming usable as a raw material, biomass can be considered a renewable and sustainable energy source.
Bio-energy is green. The use of bio-energy from sustainable biomass resources can help create a green image for individuals, companies, municipalities and governments. Power produced from bio-energy sources can be certified as “green power” and sold at a premium in the market.
Biomass energy is clean energy
it operates in a closed carbon cycle and is carbon neutral.
Bio-energy is greenhouse gas neutral. When fossil fuels are converted into energy, they emit greenhouse gases such as Carbon Dioxide.Biomass also emits carbon dioxide when it decays naturally and when it is used to produce energy. The difference is that living biomass in plants and trees absorbs carbon dioxide from the atmosphere through photosynthesis. Thus there is a closed cycle with no net emission of greenhouse gases. By substituting bio-energy for fossil-based energy, greenhouse gas emissions can be reduced.
