Biomass Renewable Energy
Biomass renewable energy may sound like a confusing or difficult to
understand concept, but it really is quite simple. And what’s even more interesting about it, is that it can
be used as a renewable energy source.
Biomass is quite simply organic matter – materials that come from plants and animals. The human
race has been using biomass energy throughout the ages – for example, burning wood to create a fire for
heating and cooking is an example of using biomass energy.
Biomass products store energy gained from exposure to sunlight, and when these organic matters
are burned, they release energy and so produce heat and light.
Although cooking by the campfire, made with heather, bracken and logs, is one example of using
renewable biomass energy, but biomass materials can also be burned on a larger scale and used to produce
steam, which in turn can provide heating and electricity.

And while biomass material includes crops, trees, oil plants and grasses, it is not just rural
areas that have biomass material in abundance. There is wood waste from things like pallets, off cuts of wood
and old wooden furniture, biodegradable waste in our garbage, such as food and paper and even though it
sounds disgusting, our sewage is also useable. The methane from sewage can be contained and burned, resulting
There are many, many uses for biomass matter and its uses as a renewable energy source. One way
is making biomass into a biofuel, a liquid that can be used to fuel our vehicles. This method of powering
vehicles, using Ethanol and Biodiesel, is becoming more and more widespread.
It seems the whole world is now getting on the biomass band wagon, and where vehicles and fuel
are concerned, many countries are offering financial incentives or tax breaks for those opting for
For example, drivers using ethanol vehicles in Sweden do not pay excise duty, and get free
parking, while in Brazil ethanol-blended fuel cars are now more common than vehicles fuelled by
While using biomass products to produce energy for use at home is not always the most practical,
there are still things you can do to ensure you make the most of the renewable energy available to you. One
easy thing you can do is, wherever possible, ensure you use items and goods that have been produced through
renewable biomass energy.
Bio products are made from renewable sources, and the production process is often a lot kinder
to the environment than other processes are, as it uses a lot less energy.
There are a number of items that can be made from bio products. These include plastics, glue and
Another way to support renewable biomass energy is to make sure you do simple things like
recycle your newspapers, or buy paper products that are made from recycled materials.
Composting is another way of producing a useable product from natural, organic matter, which can
help you grow and sustain healthy flowerbeds and food products, therefore completing the biomass
