Energy from biomass: alternative for the reduction of atmospheric emissions

John Freddy Galvis Martinez, Luz Marina Torrado Gómez, Maria Fernanda Serrano Guzmán, Norma Cristina Solarte Vanegas, Diego Dario Perez Ruiz

Resumen


Biomass produces the same amount of emissions of carbon dioxide absorbed during its growth that means that emits the same amount of CO2 processing during part of its life cycle, making it neutral emissions of carbon compounds. The mass use of this energy source in developing countries with high agricultural potential is not considered feasible. This article from a research project describes the processes for biomass utilization and environmental benefits of using this energy resource that has been booming in different countries. It is concluded that although it is feasible the inclusion of biomass for energy
supply, exists a lack of guidelines for sustainable use.
