Biomass fuels

  1. 1. BIOMASS FUELS BY ANDREW SCHABERG
  2. 2. WHAT IS BIOMASS FUEL?• Fuel produced from organic material that has been discarded because it has no apparent value • Crops • Solid waste • Sewage• Biomass waste or energy crops• Energy is absorbed from things that usually have been burned—this energy is then converted into liquid fuels
  3. 3. TYPES OF BIOMASS FUELS• First generation • Produced through burning of food crops • Resulting energy absorption converted into fuels • Vegetable oil, sugars, starches• Second generation • Produced through the burning of solid, non-food biomass • Corn stalks, switchgrass• Third generation • Produced through the farming of “algae termed algaculture” • Perhaps has the most potential, can be very efficient • Specifically for biomass fuel production
  4. 4. WHY BIOMASS FUELS?• Sustainable and relevant for future generations • Will never deplete like fossil fuel reserves• Leaves a very small carbon footprint • Better for the environment• Job creation in biomass fuel industry • Job security because there will never be a lack of waste
  5. 5. OTHER FACTS• Can tend to be more expensive than normal gases • Due to the process that these materials must go through• While it creates a fuel that runs similarly in engines compared with normal gas, it is still more environmentally friendly
