In the past ten years, there has been a revolution in the way governments, people, and industry view energy.
The positive aspects of biomass energy came to the forefront of this discussion. Why use biomass for our energy needs: the pros The central positive character of biomass is that it is part of the life cycle.
This means that it is not toxic to the environment because it is more or less the environment. An additional benefit is the fact that biomass almost always decomposes relatively quickly to its natural elements.
This means that a spill of biomass fuel would be much less harmful than an oil spill, especially in the long run. Burning biomass expels carbon dioxide, among other gases. Carbon dioxide, of course, is a greenhouse gas.
Proponents of biomass energy, however, argue that the gases produced are not a problem because they are part of the current cycle. With that, they claim that carbon dioxide is a natural element of nature, and they are correct.
Fossil fuels, on the other hand, are outside the natural cycle of the world because they are buried in the soil, which effectively means that they are not part of naturally occurring phases.
As we dig and drill fossil fuels off the ground, we are adding the harmful elements found in them to a system that cannot withstand the massive influx.
We already use many biomass fuels in our daily lives. The first cavemen used them to light fires to heat, protect, and cook.
Today, we use them to power our cars in the form of biodiesel and bioethanol.
Whether you realize it or not, these two fuels have been entering our cars at gas stations since 1990, in parts of the country. The reason is that they are used as additives in gasoline to reduce harmful carbon dioxide emissions.
Federal law determines its use in certain cities like Los Angeles, as well as in most government vehicles. Carbon dioxide produced from vehicles makes up more than a third of all greenhouse gases produced in our country.
Bioethanol produced from corn reduces these emissions by more than 20% compared to essential gasoline. Biodiesel produced from soy reduces emissions by up to 80%.
Whichever way you establish it, using biomass fuel is a step in the right direction.
