Biomass, Page 2

Biomass is biological material from living organisms most often referring to plants. Biomass power can be produced directly by burning the biomass material or indirectly by converting it to another energy product such as biofuel. Biomass-derived energy holds the promise of reducing carbon dioxide emissions. Although the burning of biomass releases as much carbon dioxide as burning fossil fuels, biomass burning does not introduces new carbon into the atmosphere, while burning fossil fuels does. This is mainly because fossil fuels are locked within the ground and biomass is part of the existing ecosystem of our earth. The biggest sources of biomass energy are wood and waste. These sources are either turned into another form of biofuel or burned directly to produce heat and energy.
