About Biomass Power Generation

What is biomass power generation?

Biomass power generation is a type of thermal power generation that generates electricity by turning a turbine using steam or gas generated using heat when burning wood scraps and burnable dust. Biomass power is a form of renewable energy, as follows.

Carbon Neutral

Biomass power is generated with the purpose of being “carbon neutral“, that does not cause a net change in CO2 in the atmosphere. Although biomass plants emit CO2 when wood fuel is burned, CO2 in the atmosphere is re-absorbed through photosynthesis during the growth of replacement trees. This concept of a closed carbon loop is called carbon neutral.


Renewable

The original source of energy in biomass is solar energy taken in by plants and stored by growth through photosynthesis. Biomass power is a renewable energy because it’s process can be repeated without depleting natural resources.
