  8. 8. Turning Biomass into Electricity BoilerBiomass High Heat Steam Steam spins the Rotating magnets turbine blades create electricity
  9. 9. Inside a biomass steam boiler Pipes filled with water are heated to make steam Fire heats the water
  10. 10. Steam TurbineBoiler
  11. 11. What biomass can you burn to make fire?
  12. 12. T By ip oe ms a so sf
  13. 13. What is this?How much of this do you eat?

  16. 16. Farmers often burn theircrop waste to get rid of it
  17. 17. How can we stop this?Biomass Power!
  18. 18. Grown Biomass= Energy Crops
  19. 19. Seedlings (2 months) Saplings (1 year) Tree Plantations7 years 3 years
  20. 20. Where do these trees grow? Southeast Central America Asia Congo Basin Amazon Basin
  21. 21. Forest ProductsFrom Lumber Logs From Pulp Logs
  22. 22. Different trees, different logs
  23. 23. Tree Harvesting Lumber Logs Slash Bundles Pulp Logs
  24. 24. Cutting SortingHauling Loading
  25. 25. Wood Chipping MachineChipping
  26. 26. Bringing it all together…with no waste! Electricity and Steam Paper Mill are used by the Paper Mill Biomass power and heat plant Saw mill Wood chips from forestry waste Harvested Logs Saw dust from sawmill
  27. 27. If I cut a tree, is it dead? No, it can Coppice This tree is about 400 years old!
  28. 28. Where is this?Pasay Road, Dasmariñas Village

  32. 32. Food or animal waste ferments in the pond, releasing methane gas Methane is highlyflammable!!
  33. 33. How to Capture BiogasThick rubber sheets Methane gas builds up cover the pond under the rubber sheet
  34. 34. Tank typebiogas plant Power GeneratorBiogas Capture Tanks Methane Gas Pipe
  35. 35. Humans also generate lots of waste!Covered landfills capture methane like a balloonThis methane can be used to generate electricity
  36. 36. Thank You!
