How does biomass energy work?
Biomass is a renewable energy source. Every energy source starting from the sun (photosynthetic) and which convert to chemical energy. We can get energy as burning, methane gas, Biofuel.
Ancient men used biomass to cook food and getting warm, modern people changed it. Using knowledge uses for drive vehicles (trucks, cars, etc.) using biomass gas and runs types of machinery from biomass electricity.
Ways to convert biomass into energy
- Thermal conversion
- Chemical conversion
- Biochemical conversion
- Electrochemical conversion
Biomass energy advantages and disadvantages
Advantages of biomass energy
- Renewable energy –
Biomass is worldwide (abundant) available as a renewable source of energy.
- Cost-effective – we can reduce our money wastage (spent )on fossil fuel
Compare with fossil fuel and biogas, it’s cheaper than fossil fuel
help to offset emission from fossil fuel
minimized the traditional electricity users
- Carbon naturally –
- Waste reduction –
Less garbage inland area
Help to generate new power – ( it can generate power using animal and human wastes every day)
Variety of organic sources
Helps to clean our town and cities
Relatively cheaper and reliable
Recycle – ( reduce pollution and spread diseases )
- Abundant availability –
When growing biomass corps use up carbon dioxide (CO2 ) and produce Oxygen ( O2 )
Help to climate-changing by reducing GHG ( GreenHouse Gas )
- Manufactures / Innovation –
Can create a different product for the market
Turning trash to electrical
Disadvantages of biomass energy
- Health hazard
Produce dirty smell surrounding the area
Entirely not cleaned
some people don’t like to cook with this gas, using by sewerage
- Expensive –
construct of biogas plant cost is very high, therefor rich people can use it well.
This energy production required a lot of space, money, and effort.
- Environmental damage –
increased risk of deforestation
Source of emission and air pollution.
It is not completely cleaned.
Emit harmful gas to the environment.
- Use of area, land / Big space –
Biomass plant required a large space than fossil fuel
- Other issues –
it should be continuously supplied biomass to generate biomass energy.
It’s under developing –
Inefficient compared to gasoline.
It’s unpredictability and seasonable
Biomass energy Examples
- Grown crops
- Timber mills
- Animal poo
- Wood & wood chips
- Leftover food
- Sugar cane
- municipal solid waste
- yard clippings
- dried vegetation
- aquatic plants
The future is green energy
In the modern world, people are trying to how to reduce garbage impact? There is one way to use garbage as a power source. This is the knowledge of humans. Every unwanted garbage (mention above Biomass energy Example)
The reason is fossil fuel is limited to the future world. therefor results of its Biomass energy (renewable energy) comes forward.
Most of the rich countries are big narrow to this renewable energy than others. they try to give the best of their knowledge introducing innovation and investing more money for an experiment of renewable energy.
Conclusion on the advantages VS. Disadvantages of biomass
Think to Narrow to Advantages of renewable energy, Disadvantages maybe appear, (Our goal should be winning side), We should win that fault. without that, we can’t continue this.
Some countries are using Biomass energy, In the near future, most of the countries are maybe use this renewable energy.
What do you think about Biomass energy? And what should the experiment how it should be?
As humanity for a solution for energy, you can introduce a new idea and I love to hear from you. If you have any idea please comment below. Your idea may change the world. If this article useful for you don’t forget to share your friends it maybe helps.
