Many people have expressed interest in installing solar panels and wind turbines to generate their own personal power supply. However, there is another alternative green power source available: biomass. Although not quite so popular, biomass has a number of benefits that are not shared by solar or wind power.
As animal and food waste decomposes, a hazardous gas called methane is released into the air, which has been shown to affect the ozone layer.Didnâ€™t catch that? This explains it. However, this methane can actually be captured in an anaerobic digester and can be recycled into biomass, which can then be used to generate power. Further, when the animal and food waste is finished producing methane, it can then be safely used as fertilizer.
Unlike solar and wind power, biomass takes a natural and environmentally-harmful byproduct that is produced through daily life and transforms it into two renewable resources: safe material that can be used as fertilizer, and a source of power. Animal waste never looked so good.
If your household or business produces a large amount of food waste or animal waste, generating and using biomass as a personal power source might be a great alternative to to traditional power sources.

Biomass, and other fuel-alternatives that are being created from agricultural products could play a vital role in addressing the current energy crisis. Learning more about this technology, as well as the role in may play in dealing with a number of severe economic and environmental issues stemming from the current crisis, will ensure that you are able to make full use of any alternative-energy solutions that can make a difference.Confused? Ambitious waste plan would target emissions

http://www.greenenergyresources.com/2013/03/24/what-is-biomass-and-how-is-it-used/#commentsSun, 24 Mar 2013 00:00:00 +0000adminhttp://www.greenenergyresources.com/?p=3What Is Biomass?
Biomass is a media used for filtering pollutants from an industrial process. Biomass media was first used in technology in Holland in the late 1980s to absorb pollutants like VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) that pollute air streams. The components of biomass may be salt hay, organic wood chips or a combination of absorbent styrene pellets embedded into organic soil. Another component is a specific breed of microorganisms that are inoculated into the biomass “bed.” The biomass bed may be a tower, a large industrial holding tank or stand-alone, impervious structure.
How Is Biomass Used?
In most cases, the purpose of biomass is to reduce the amount of contaminants in a process in the most cost-effective and efficient manner possible. Biomass reduces the need for special hazardous waste landfills. Inoculated biomass microorganisms capture VOCs in the bed of the structure and regenerate contaminated process particulate. The result is reusable media that is safe for human exposure and use. Biofilters are the chief mechanism that maintains proper temperature for microorganism viability and the moisture balance and temperature in the biomass media. Biofilters are used in food, flavor, solvent and wastewater treatment processes as an effective way to control pollutants.
