Advantages of Bio-energy

Biomass is regarded to be a greenhouse gas (GHG) free substance.

Advantages of Bio-energy

Bio-energy and Agronomy

Fossil fuels have a limited supply and constitute GHG’s flux from underneath the Earth’s surface to the air, while their creation via the decomposition of plants and animals takes centuries.

Bio-Energy in Greenhouse Gas Impact Reduction

The positive effect of bio-energy on GHG-pollution decline is much stronger than that of any similar sources of renewable energy. For instance, bio-energy plants with the systems designed to control emissions can process and incinerate stubble with minimum harm to the atmosphere instead of burning it in the field. Therefore, greenhouse gas emissions are reduced two-fold — first, by avoiding an open burning and second, by replacing fossil fuels when applying bio-energy techniques.

The advantages that bio-energy and similar sources of renewable energy offer are a subject of thorough, ongoing research, such as the IEA Bioenergy Task 38 project, known as “Greenhouse Gas Balances of Biomass and Bioenergy Systems.”

Bio-energy is also very beneficial to the air as processing the biomass does not involve combusting it in an open fire with all the emissions floating into the atmosphere.

Developing economies and creating jobs

Bio-energy boosts the economic welfare of local regions. New jobs emerge as the industry creates advanced, regionalized, and diverse income sources from biomass processing. Landowners have an additional market to trade their agricultural products, tree yield, and agronomy wastes. Bio-energy also makes it possible to cultivate new types of plants on lands less suitable for traditional crops, like how Juncea is grown on a less-hydrated land for biodiesel production.

Biomass cultivation and collection, transportation, trading, bio-energy plants construction and management are only some of the fields that provide new jobs opportunities for people in the regions where bio-energy industry is developed.

An Increasing Variety of Technologies and Exploitation Methods

The process of generating “green” energy can help create other types of bio-products and bio-technologies. For instance, manure, being produced by anaerobic food assimilation, can be utilized to fertilize and nourish soil.

Biomass can release necessary chemical substances as a result of a complex biological refinery processes, comparable to that of an oil refinery.

Alternative Choices to Traditional Forest Burning

It has also been noted that water quality has increased tremendously in the regions where biomass production took over the burnings. With this aim, biomass production and elimination for bio-energy and other industries gained their popularity and are now widely spread all over the US forests.

Enhancing the Environment by Cultivating Particular Bio-energy Products

Some plants like Mallee eucalyptus, which is broadly spread throughout Australia, can be yielded many times and therefore can constantly contribute to the production of bio-energy and provide similar advantages to the local environment.

Biochar Generation

Present-day advanced pyrolysers are able to seize methane and transform it along with other gases to bio-energy and reduce emissions.

Biochar systems are still researched as it is necessary that they perform a full life cycle to define their perspectives in climate-impact management by internationally approved standards. The International Biochar Initiative (IBI) is developing worldwide standards for biochar determination and regulation of biochar production and usage.

Biochar is a reliable form of charcoal generated from burning organic materials, like timber or biological products with low levels of oxygen, also called “pyrolysis” and “gasification”.

The process of producing biochar from pyrolysis involves the release of heat and bio-oil in the amount dependent on temperature and type of pyrolysis process, which is also a way of generating bio-energy.

Gasification is one more biochar production method, although the final product is only approximately 1%, the rest of which is syngas. Synthesis gas (also called wood gas) represents a mixture of different gases along with hydrogen and carbon monoxide, which can be seized, filtered, and burnt to generate energy.
