Bioenergy - energy production from biofuels of various kinds.
Bioenergy means energy production both from solid biofuels (wood chips; wood, husks, straw, etc. pellets, briquettes), biogas and liquid biofuels of different origin.
The term "bioenergy" is used both in electricity generation, heat generation and the joint production of heat and power (cogeneration).
Benefits of bioenergy:
- renewable resources - biomass, unlike oil and gas, is an inexhaustible source of energy
- greenhouse gas emissions reduction - biomass during growth picks up carbon oxides - the main reason (still disputable) of global warming
- responsible attitude to resources - the development of bioenergy caused global changes in the consciousness of mankind, once the biomass has become a source of energy and, consequently, profits, humanity has to defend and control raw material sources (forests, agriculture waste)
- reduce logistics costs - one of the still constant sources atmosphere contamination are emissions from vehicles, bioenergy is the impetus for the efficient use of fuel, since the very concept of using biomass as an energy source increases usage of local fuels
