Biomass is biological material of living, or recently living plants like trees, grass, agricultural crops, wood wastes, etc. Biomass material is a renewable, low carbon fuel that is already widely available in many countries since it brings additional environmental and social benefits.
1. Biomass material can be easily get in local places.
2. Biomass pellets making can offer local business opportunities and support the rural economy.
3. The use of biomass fuel provides an economic incentive to manage woodland which improves biodiversity.
4. Many biomass fuels generate lower levels of such atmospheric pollutants as sulphur dioxide.
5. Modern biomass combustion systems are highly sophisticated, offering combustion efficiency and emission levels comparable with the best fossil fuel boilers.
6. Biomass residues, arisings, co-products and waste not used for energy, or some other application will usually rot. This will generate CO2 in any case, and may also produce methane (CH4), a greenhouse gas 21 times more potent that CO2.
