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 Please share/bookmark with: Hydrogen Energy Hydrogen Energy can be used as alternative to the fossil fuel and many scientists around the world feel that hydrogen as a source of energy could be a permanent solution to the global crisis we are facing in our energy supplies. As Hydrogen (H2) gas can be produced from water, it is therefore one of the lightest, most efficient, cost effective and cleanest fuel on the planet and as such has the great


biofuel energy

Biolubricants and Bio Lubes Please share/bookmark with: Biolubricants and Bio Lubes Biolubricants are made from vegetable and plant oils, which themselves are a type of non-food biomass energy. Our planet is highly dependent on the use and consumption of fossil fuels (e.g. petroleum, coal and natural gas) to fulfil its energy needs. Clearly, our petroleum based economy can not be sustained indefinitely relying solely on cheap and non-renewable fossil based oils and materials for its energy needs. Alternatives to petrol,

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

biofuel energy

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
