Since time unknown, we have obtained all our energy resources from Mother Nature. We have used woods and coals for burning and giving us energy for making food and giving us warmth on chilly winter nights. Then came electricity that changed the course of our lives and cars for traveling. With every modern discovery, the depletion and loot of resources became even more severe.
Though we have already caused much harm to the Mother Nature, it is not too late for correcting the mistakes that we have done. Of course, we cannot undo the harm that is irreversibly done but we can surely make sure that our future choices of fuel are not causing the nature any more irreversible scar.
That is why the future of the fuel is reversible energy sources, like the biomass project.
What is Biomass?
Biomass is the industry term used for denoting the energy obtained from burning organic compounds including woods. Though its production of carbon is a tad bit more than the production of carbon in regular fuel resources, we should opt for it due to its potential for renewability. They are mostly referred to as lignocellulosic fuel as the plant or flora that is used for obtaining energy is not used by any person or animal for feeding or does not have any medicinal purposes. Biomass can be used directly to produce heat or it can also be used to make different fuels by processing it further into different fuel types. All of these fuels are collectively called biofuels.
The source of biomass can range from wood or swamps in the forest to our daily rejected wastes like solid municipal wastes. All these apparently unnecessary substances can sum up to produce a sustainable form of energy that is made from recycling certain organic compounds rich in carbon quantity. Biomass is the future of fuel.
Biomass projects are aimed at providing reliable and sustainable biomass energy to us. These projects are going for constant development and improvisation of the biomass energy and its scopes of producing even more efficient fuels with higher contents of carbon for better ignition but not more emission of carbon in nature. Because the carbon released in the form of carbon di oxide is extremely bad for our nature, as it gives rise to greenhouse gas effect.
This project also works on finding more sustainable resources for the production of biomass and biofuel. They also work on promoting the use of biomass and biofuel by educating and waking people about it. Different biomass projects are going on all over the world in different research labs, colleges, universities etc., with only the sole objective of finding a sustainable resource of fuels. Some lab also focuses on developing a regional energy stock in different dedicated energy crops, such as in the plant, Miscanthus.
We do not have much hope with the fossil fuel because they are not going to be replenished, but projects like biomass projects give our generation a hope for a brighter future for our coming generations.
