Biomass Information Guide – Presented by 1st Choice Waste Management Group
Biomass is a material or organic matter that often poses a lot of questions as to how it is produced and how it can be used. Although you usually utilise organic matter in the production of a biofuel, there’s more and more matter that can be used to create biomass or biofuels.
Biofuels are being used all over the world for a variety of applications from fuels such as biodiesel for vehicles to fuel sources. At 1st Choice Waste Management, we utilise our biomass boiler during waste processing to increase the amount of organic waste and other waste types that can be recycled to reduce waste sent to landfill.
But what is biomass, biofuel and other fuel types? How can these be used across industries, sectors and businesses and what is the use of biomass across recycling and waste management solutions.
This informative guide will inform you further about biomass and biofuels as well as how these can be used in recycling as well as fuel and biodiverse applications.
1st Choice Waste Management have offered waste management services from our headquarters in Redcar for many years. For more information on our services or if you wish to organise waste management for your organisation then enquire with our team or contact us using a contact form on our website.
What is This Biomass Substance?
Naturally, biomass appears as an organic substance. In essence, biomass occurs naturally as organic substances with organic matter that can be burned to release energy. Crops and other organic plant matter grows naturally and can be utilised as a fuel source. Typically these organic fuels are used as an alternative to fossil fuels as they are the ‘cleaner’ alternative.
Practically all organic matter can be processed and created into a manmade biomass fuel source and can be burned in a boiler or energy system. It’s very interesting that there are natural biomass fuel sources which can also be used and this is what has made biomass more and more popular in the ever going quest to find alternatives to fossil fuels.
The Landfill Waste Problem
Biomass can be used to tackle other issues apart from the issues of greenhouse gasses (although landfill sites are known to produce methane from the decomposition of organic waste.) Certain types of waste are unable to be processed such as plastic packaging and materials that are unable to be recycled. Organic waste however can be processed into pellets and then burned in a purpose built biomass boiler. It’s a great way to reduce the amount of organic waste that’s currently just sent to landfill to decompose. Recycling of other products and the difficulty of recycling some substances is another issue that is bound to become more important in the near future with biomass creating a great solution for the issues posed by organic waste.
Biomass Solutions For Businesses
Businesses can benefit from utilising biomass waste management solutions, by meeting quotas on recycling and reducing the amount of organic waste that would have otherwise been sent to landfill. With recycling at the forefront of businesses operations, these innovative waste management solutions are not surprisingly becoming more and more popular. Comprehensive and tailored waste management solutions are the perfect way to ensure that whatever your business requirements, you can arrange for a waste management solution that suits you. There are clear sectors that benefit from organic waste management such as catering or other businesses that generate a large or unusual amount of organic waste. With that being said, it’s fair to say that almost every business is likely to produce organic waste that can be managed renewably by the use of a biomass waste management solution.
