The world's energy markets rely heavily on the fossil coal, petroleum crude oil and natural gas as sources of thermal energy, gaseous, liquid and solid fuels and chemicals. The only natural, renewable carbon resource known that is large enough to be used as substitute for fossil fuels is biomass. Included are all water and land based organisms, vegetation and trees, or virgin biomass, and all dead and waste biomass such as municipal solid waste, biosolids and animal wastes and residues, forestry and agricultural residues and industrial wastes. This paper studies the effects and the development of biomass technology.

Abstract

The world's energy markets rely heavily on the fossil coal, petroleum crude oil and natural gas as sources of thermal energy, gaseous, liquid and solid fuels and chemicals. The only natural, renewable carbon resource known that is large enough to be used as substitute for fossil fuels is biomass. Included are all water and land based organisms, vegetation and trees, or virgin biomass, and all dead and waste biomass such as municipal solid waste, biosolids and animal wastes and residues, forestry and agricultural residues and industrial wastes. This paper studies the effects and the development of biomass technology.
