Biomass for Energy

Biomass is an energy that comes from plants and animals and it is a source of energy. It contains stored energy from the sun and it is called photosynthesis Solid biomass, such as wood and garbage, can be burned directly to produce heat. Biomass can also be converted into a gas called biogas or into liquid biofuels such as ethanol and biodiesel. These fuels can then be burned for energy. Ethanol is made from crops such as corn and sugar cane that are fermented to produce fuel ethanol for use in vehicles. Biodiesel is produced from vegetable oils and animal fats and can be used in vehicles and as heating oil. Although the biomass industry will be expensive it can be a very big step in protecting the resources in the world and reducing greenhouse gases that affect the environment greatly. Even though the biomass industry will be releasing emissions into the atmosphere, but will be much less than any other industry as the innovation will be using the emissions also to produce
