Biomass is essentially conserved energy that is due to photosynthesis, plants and converted into organic matter.
Biomass energy does not pollute the environment by excessive production of carbon dioxide. More negative impact on the environment is the burning of fossil fuels (coal, oil, natural gas).
Another matter during combustion of biomass ash. This waste product can be used as high quality fertilizer.
The great advantage of biomass is that the purposeful cultivation is renewed annually and can be almost inexhaustible source of raw materials and energy.
Advantages of heating biomass boiler:
- High efficiency
- Energy independence
- Easy and local availability
- Production of cheap energy
- Low fuel costs
- Low operating costs
- Rapid return on investment
- Neutral fuel (production of greenhouse gases)
