What is Bio-Mass Power?

Biomass is organic matter which is not fossilised (such as coal), material that is grown, such as trees, that captures and recycles carbon that is in our atmosphere today.

This carbon is captured and stored by plants and does not add, in fact reduces, the carbon cycle.  Biomass can act as a store of chemical energy to provide heat, electricity and fuels.

biomass powerBioenergy is a clean energy source that creates little or no net greenhouse emissions depending on the type of biomass and conversion technology used. It is also capable of being carbon negative if carbon capture and sequestration is employed. Around 10 per cent of the world’s primary energy consumption comes from bioenergy

Biomass power generation is well proven and widely used world-wide and is known as bioenergy.

Bioenergy is essentially renewable or carbon neutral (carbon recycling).  Carbon dioxide released during the energy conversion of biomass (such as combustion, gasification, pyrolysis, anaerobic digestion or fermentation) circulates through the biosphere, and is reabsorbed in equivalent stores of biomass through photosynthesis.
