Energy plays a very crucial role in the survival of humans. The energy in any form is useful to the human-kind. Further, energy from Biomass plays a massive role in growing the global energy system.
Energy from biomass makes significant contributions to the reduction of carbon emission especially from the sectors of transportation and manufacturing.
However, land‐intensive bioenergy often involves substantial carbon emissions. These emissions come from land‐use as well as production, harvesting, and transportation.
Besides, land‐intensive bioenergy estimates the utilization of vast amounts of land. A resource whose supply limits fundamentally. Biomass is a raw versatile material that can generate heat, power, transportation fuel, and bi-products.
The use of biomass as an energy source is ‘feedstock’. Feedstocks grow specifically for energy content. Moreover, they can produce waste products from industries such as agriculture, food processing, or timber production.
Dry, combustible feedstocks can generate fire in the boilers or furnaces both domestically and in industry. These methods further boil the water or create steams to run turbines for the generation of electricity.
Transportation fuel is one of the most demanded energy resources today. Transportation has become one of the most popular methods of traveling. It plays a very important role in exporting and importing businesses.
Exporting and importing business further contributes towards the economy of a country. But it is very evident that natural gas fuel is getting scarce. Hence it is very important to find an alternative to this resource. These reasons increase the demand for biofuel.
Biofuel: A product of Biomass
Biofuel is a type of fuel that is the compressed product of biomass. The formation of these by efforts does not take as long as it takes for natural fuel. They are a great alternative and comparatively very sustainable. Unlike other renewable resources, Biomass easily converts into liquid.
These liquids are further called bio-fuels, and they can meet the need for transportation fuels. As discussed early, fuels are very essential for transportation needs.
We all are aware of the fact that natural resource is getting scare due to extensive use in the last few years. To meet our present needs, this product can help us to survive. Moreover, it also assures us that the future generation will not have to face any scarcity.
Presently the two most used biofuels are ethanol and biodiesel. Both of these represent the first generation of future biofuel technology. Organic chemical, ethanol obtained from various plants and acts as a very good biofuel.
Modern vehicle designs are specifically made for them to work on ethanol fuels, called flexible-fuel vehicles. The other most used biofuel, biodiesel is a liquid renewable product.
These sources are generally from vegetable oils, animal fats just to replace petroleum-based diesel fuel. Moreover, biodiesel is a non-toxic and biodegradable product produced from a combination of alcohol and naturally obtained oils.
Biofuel Companies Increases their Business
With, the increase in demand that there are various companies that are involved in the production of biofuels. As this resource is very efficient and cheap, people tend to use more.
The UK-based company established in the 1990s, Greenergy supplies low emission diesel for notable air quality benefits. They are the first company to supply biofuel compounds to UK forecourts. Moreover, they are the first who created carbon-certified fuel products by guaranteeing greenhouse gas emissions.
Currently, the company leveled up by merging with the Canadian biofuel company BG Fuels. The merging has shown significant capabilities and expertise traversing the whole supply chain, from fuel origination, infrastructure, and supply to gas and convenience retailing.
Christian Flach, CEO of Greenergy commented, “Over recent months our priority has been to support our customers through the challenges associated with COVID-19, while also moving swiftly to integrate our combined Canadian operations into one team. As a fully integrated downstream fuels business, we are now best-placed to extend our presence across Canada and deliver on our ambitious growth strategy in the years ahead.”
