Biofuels are a source of renewable energy derived from organic matter or Biomass. Examples Wood Food waste Animal waste Soybeans, corn, switchgrass Algae
Pros Carbon neutral fuel Renewable Cons Less energy dense than fossil fuels Currently require oil and coal to refine the biofuels Requires a lot of land and water to produce Food vs. Fuel debate
Energy density is the amount of energy in Joules per kilogram or m^3 of fuel FuelMJ/kgCO2 (kg/kg) Crude Oil46.33.4 Natural Gas53.63 Coal243.59 Wood16.21.88 Animal Dung10-15
Testing the caloric output of different biomaterials. A calorimeter is a device that measures the heat output of a sample of fuel.
Biomass By: Mikayla Holland Natalie Berger Claire Franklin.
Why are fossil fuels considered nonrenewable? Fossil Fuels are sources of energy that take a very long period of time to form and once depleted, are essentially.

Alternative Energy: Biomass Erica Cabaluna and others.
Biofuels /Biomass briquettes By Tyler Jenniges. Biofuel / Biodiesel Biodiesel is a replacement for diesel fuel. Biodiesel should not be confused with.
Renewable Resource: Biomass and Biofuels. What is biomass? Any organic matter that can be used for fuel. – Wood = #1 biomass fuel used globally. – Crops,
Renewable energy Alternatives to fossil fuels. Which countries consume the most energy? think: How much more energy do Americans use than Chinese?
Primary Energy Sources Primary sources can be used directly. These have not been transformed or converted. coal/ oil natural gas wood sun/wind Defining.
Using Heat to Generate Electricity In many areas, thermoelectric generating plants use a fuel such as coal or biomass to heat water to create high- pressure.
