Biomass is a renewable energy, because we can always grow more trees and crops that go into making biomass energy. Biomass works when plants go through photosynthesis. The chemical energy in the plants gets passed on to animals that eat the plants and then to people who eat the animals. Biomass is a natural material used to produce energy. Biomass works like this, waste wood, tree branches and other scraps are gathered together, then they are all burned, the heat from the burning is used to boil water in the boiler,and the energy is the steam used to turn the turbines and generators, this biomass is made that would be used as landfill gas. Another example of biomass being used is the biomass is it can be decomposed and created into a gas and put in to power plants to make electricity. This energy comes from waste products, some garbage, crops, manure, and waste wood, landfill waste, sewer waste, animal waste and grass. Biomass energy can be soild or confired. The price for the two would be different. For soild biomass it would cost from $3,000 to $4500 dollars as shown in the chart below, and for confire biomass it would cost from $300 to $500 dollars. To compare biomass to different sources of energy look at the bottom of this page and you will see a chart. Biomass is made up of solar energy, carbon dioxide and water. There are alternate methods for accessing biomass energy, they are Co-firing, Chemical Processing, Biochemical and Thermochemical. Overall biomass is a great, clean, easy source of energy.
This chart shows the price of biomass compared to other sources of energy.
