Biomass Energy

  1. 1. Shelly Kim & Seo-Yeon Choi
  2. 2. • biological renewable energy source from living or dead organisms (ex wood, waste, gas, and alcohol fuels).• Renewable energy source• From: dead organisms• Power production• Alternative fossil fuel
  3. 3. Socio-culturalAdvantages Disadvantages• More jobs created for bio • Farmland -> lands for food mass production• Balance employees at – Less provision of food to the power plant world• 66,000 jobs are supported by biomass
  4. 4. EnvironmentalAdvantages Disadvantages• Biomass can make • Unstable electricity and heat – Raising of beef cattle – Can replace fossil fuels – Contributes to global• More efficient than warming gases in the environment traditional rendering • Huge amount of animal• Doesn’t contribute to global killing warming – MORE MEAT to replace fuel
  5. 5. PoliticalAdvantages Disadvantages• Reduction of dependency • Takes up too much energy on imported oil and resources of country – Countries don’t have to rely on foreign bio fuels • Biomass collection is• More jobs difficult and expensive – 20X more jobs than coal and – Politicians may argue whether oil it is worth the cost• Rural development and income opportunities• Can create good relationships if exported
  6. 6. OverallAdvantages Disadvantages• Less demand on fossil fuel • Burn biofuel: Produces• Cheaper than fossil fuel greenhouse gas• More environmentally • Expensive when building friendly • Higher demand: forcing mass production of crops -> infertile soil
  7. 7. Graph below shows how capable biomass is as an alternative source of energy
  8. 8. Shows how biomass takes up a lot of land
  9. 9. Graph showing how cheap biomass is
  10. 10. Energy forecasters predict that biomass will generate 4.5% of the kilowatt-hours consumed in the U.S. — more than wind and solar combined.
  11. 11. As the graph illustrates biomass is expected to remain the second-largest source of renewable electricity generation(behind hydropower) through 2030. Of all the renewable energy sources, biomass is the fastest growing, going from 11% of the total in 2007, to more than 41% in 2030.
