Renewable Biomass and Biogas Energy

Biomass Energy is defined by the utilization of renewable organic materials, such as wood, agricultural crops or wastes, and municipal wastes, as a source of fuel or energy. Biomass can be burned directly or processed into biofuels such as ethanol and methane.
Farm waste such as manure, but also food and garden residues can be processed into biomass to form biogas.
Waste heat harnessed by waste-to-energy plants can generate electricity, as well as thermal energy for heating buildings.
Even household waste is being referred to as biofuels. About 15% of municipal solid waste is burned.
Biomass can further be broken down into more specific category’s which have different types of uses. Biomass that comes from wood keeps its form and or is formed into pellet size uniformity to be used for biomass heating systems and electricity.
One of the major advantages of bio-materials as a source of energy is that it is renewable, CO2-neutral and often a real economic alternative.
With approximately 140 billion metric tons of biomass produced every year and growing, we could see biomass fuels replacing fossil fuels in the near future as they deplete even further increasing the demand for a cheap, efficient renewable fuel source.
For more general information on the basics of "Biomass" and "Biogas" we would like to invite you to visit the comprehensive web-sites of the "Biomass Energy Centre" and the "Anaerobic Digestion Portal", or simply contact us for all other questions.
We look forward to assisting you in your efforts to determine and persue the most suitable and feasible solution for your energy needs.
