Advantages of Biomass energy. People says that biomass energy do not have any different than other energy.

Biomass energy just have the same amount of carbon dioxide, methane released. The most famous debate is about food and biomass energy. Large areas of crop and farm land are used for growing biomass. This cultivation of crops for fuel might just put a little to much strain on our limited resources such as water and land which could be used for food crops. This biomass energy also just not economical to produce, grow and transport biomass. This is especially true when the source of biomass is not too close to the area of processing or the methods used to process it are wasteful. This energy have a very lower fuel economy than normal fossil fuels so that it not be able to generate enough energy efficiently. This energy also a bit negligible as it depend on a seasonal crops such as corn season. The net energy produce from this energy is very low and not very efficient energy. Still need to remember there is still good effect of biomass energy. There are many advantages of using biomass energy. Biomass energy produces less methane in atmosphere. In general, methane is released by decomposition of atmosphere. Methane is very dangerous when it release into the air. This is because methane causes more greenhouse effect than carbon dioxide (la Garza, n.d). By capturing this harmful energy, we can save our atmosphere. This is a good chances to use biomass to good effect while can harvest this gas and put it to good use.

Moreover, biomass energy can save the environment from being polluted. Biomass released less of nitrogen compound. Air pollution and acid rain can also be reduced if the nitrogen compound is lessen by using biomass (Advantages of biomass energy, n . d). Furthermore, biomass is a bio-degradable matter while fossil fuels contained carbon and nitrogen from million years ago that would give a negative impact on the environment as they release excessive amount of nitrogen. On top of that, the replacing biomass energy from fossil fuels would reduce field burn and forest as it is lower the risk to get burn compared to other energy. Transportation fuels can be produced by using biomass energy. The oil produced is from the extraction of plant that has the same characteristics as fuels such as log. Hence, we can cut the petroleum usage by 30percent. (La Garza, n.d). In addition, the greenhouse gas emission can be reduced up to 10percent ( La Garza, n.d). Furthermore, biomass energy is cheaper compare to the other energy. We can burn chip wood to make fire instead of using gas that we normally used to cook. Thus, we can reduce our using of gas supply to make fire as gas is more expensive because it is non-renewable source (Coysh, 2012). The process to convert biomass to energy is easier and more efficient thus the cost selling of it is cheaper. Finally, the effect of using biomass energy gives good effect to our greenworld because it lessen the negative effect to the environment such as acid rain, dangerous gas emmision and many more. The government should promote this energy to the world because if many people are using

biomass energy, the lower the risk fo the environment and atmosphere from getting polluted. Thus the world might change to something more beautiful, cleaner and greener than before.
