1) Biomass when used as a fuel, reduces need for fossil fuels
for the production of heat, steam, and electricity for residential, industrial
and agricultural use.
2) Biomass is always available and can be produced as a
3) Biomass fuel from agriculture wastes maybe a secondary
product that adds value to agricultural crop.
4) Growing Biomass crops produces oxygen and uses up carbon
5) The use of waste materials reduce landfill disposal
and makes more space for everything else.
6) Carbon Dioxide which is released when Biomass fuel is
burned, is taken in by plants.
7) Less money spent on foreign oil.
Agricultural wastes will not be available if
the basic crop is no longer grown.
Additional work is needed in areas such as
Land used for energy crops maybe in demand for
other purposes, such as farming, conservation, housing, resort or agricultural
Some Biomass conversion projects are from
animal wastes and are relatively small and therefore are limited.
Research is needed to reduce the costs of
production of Biomass based fuels.
Is in some cases is a major cause of
