  • Double boost for biomass in Britain

    Energy Minister Charles Hendry today gave the go-ahead for two new biomass stations in Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire, which combined will produce enough electricity to meet the needs of over a million homes. The minister gave formal consent to: Drax Biomass (Selby) Limited for a 299MW biomass-fuelled power station on land at the existing 4000 MW Drax Power Station site in Selby, North ...

  • Biomass is top of investment in renewables

    Biomass facilities have become a more attractive investment than wind and solar technologies, according to experts in the renewable energy sector. A survey by KMPG found that 37% of respondents intended to invest in biomass, while 36% wanted to invest in solar and 35% wind. KPMG energy partner in the UK Andy Cox said: “Biomass plants have the potential to yield much higher returns than ...

  • Polish biomass market on the move

    Poland plans to introduce a new law on renewable energies. Today, co-incinerating biomass in coal power plants is dominating. In the future, however, the support of smaller mono-incinerators and the use of CHP technology should be strengthened. This will lead to new opportunities to develop projects at industrial locations that produce large amounts of biomass. This is the result of an analysis ...

  • Biomass Calculator Launched

    A scientific calculator has been developed that investigates the impact on carbon emissions of biomass sourced from North America to produce electricity. The calculator finds that biomass, when sourced responsibly, can be used in a low carbon and sustainable way. The government’s Bioenergy Strategy published in 2012 made clear only bioenergy from sustainable sources should be used. In ...

  • Global limits of biomass energy

    Biomass energy-energy generated from agricultural waste or specially grown energy crops-has been widely touted as a clean, renewable alternative to fossil fuels. Research is booming to improve energy crops and methods of converting crops to fuel. Already, Brazil gets 30% of its automotive fuel from ethanol distilled from sugar cane. But critics warn that "energy farming" will gobble up land ...

  • Future of biomass uncertain

    Industry experts have warned that building new facilities providing renewable energy from biomass in the UK has suddenly become uncertain as current legislation is having a significant impact on the financing of biomass facilities. The issue, which has seen the development of many new plants come to a halt, relates to the principle of ‘grandfathering’ of Renewable Obligation Certificates. ...

  • Invest in `green` biomass fuels

    With the right policies and investment in research, developing nations can turn their dependence on biomass fuels into a renewable and sustainable energy supply, says Duncan Macqueen. Fuels derived from biomass — mainly wood, but also plant and animal matter — produce lower greenhouse gas emissions than fossil fuels, and can be converted into heat, electricity, liquid or gas. Yet they ...

  • Getting biomass from A to B

    A key component of any biomass to energy chain is of course logistics, getting fuel feedstock from the production site to the end-user. For large users such as power stations or combined heat and power plants this can involve moving large volumes over long distances using a variety of transportation modes. And at World Bioenergy there are those specialised in providing these services. ...
