Alternative Energy Tutorials on Biomass

Biochar Energy

Biochar Charcoal

Biochar is a charcoal looking carbon rich substance formed by heating organic biomass plant matter in low-oxygen conditions by a process known as pyrolysis. Biochar can be added to the soil as an amendment and fertiliser to improve soil conditions as well as the sequestation of carbon in the soil to reduce levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide. There are many biomass feedstocks suitable for biochar production but the type of biomass feedstock use in the pyrolysis process will determine the quality and efficiency of the biochar product

Hydrogen Energy

Hydrogen energy from a renewable energy perspective is a low-carbon energy supply we can use to power our homes and cars. Green hydrogen is a clean energy source which can play an important role in reducing the global requirements of fossil fuels. The use of hydrogen energy can provide the bridge between the variable output from solar photovoltaics and wind turbines as well as becoming a lowest-cost option for storing large quantities of electrical energy. Hydrogen and hydrogen-based transportation fuels can help transport renewable energy sources over longer distances


biofuel energy

Biolubrications, bio-based lubricants and bio-lubes are made from a different variety of vegetable seeds and oils, such as rapeseed, canola, sunflower, soybean, palm, and coconut oils. Biolubricants are used in machinery as a direct replacement for conventional fossil fuel based oils reducing the impact on the environment as a result of leakage during use or in sensitive areas in or around water which can remain contaminated for many years. Biolubricants reduce the impact on the environment and workers due to their lower toxicity levels compared to conventional lubricants and greases

Second Generation Biofuels

Second Generation Biofuels Please share/bookmark with: Second Generation Biofuels and Cellulosic Biofuels from Algae The use of Biofuels is growing around the world as the demand for a greener and cleaner alternative to burning traditional fossil fuels grows. We have known for a while now that biofuels can help reduce the harmful greenhouse gas emissions pumped into the atmosphere from burning fossil fuels and it is expected that bioenergy products will become an important part of the global energy supply

Biogas a Renewable Energy Gas Resource

Biogas is a Renewable Energy Gas Resource Please share/bookmark with: Biogas is a Renewable Energy Gas Resource Biogas and other such biofuels are today starting to become used more and more around the world in just about every conceivable area both domestically and industrially, and as such could be one of the answers to the worlds energy problem as well as reducing global warming. Biogas, which consists mainly of methane (CH4), giving rise to the term “Biomethane”, is produced when

Ethanol used as a Fuel

Ethanol Used As A Fuel Please share/bookmark with: Ethanol the most widely used Biomass Fuel Type Biomass has been a major source of energy in the world since the beginning of time and has now developed into an interesting alternative energy source. Biomass is the generalised term used to describe any kind of organic biological matter that can be converted into useful energy. Biomass is renewable energy produced by living things like plant and vegetable matter or by the waste
