Algae and biomass briquettes

Algae and Biomass Briquettes


Energy algae

Energy (Algae)

  • People say that Algae is the biofuel of the future.

  • But it isn’t as simple as getting the algae itself and putting it in our gas tanks.

  • Scientist have to use various mechanical and chemical methods.

  • Algae might be an end to using fossil flues.


Benefits algae

Benefits (Algae)

  • We don’t have to use crops such as palms to produce oil.

  • Algae grows almost anywhere.

  • Can reduce Carbon emissions depending on where it’s grown.

  • The extracts from the algae oil can be used as livestock feed and can be made into ethanol .


Drawbacks algae

Drawbacks (Algae)

  • There are a couple of disadvantages.

  • For one, this is a new technology.

  • Produces unstable biodiesel.

  • Biodiesel performs poorly compared to fossil fuels.


Government plans algae

Government plans (Algae)

  • The government pledged to invest up to $24 million to three research groups.


Not number one fuel source algae

Not number one fuel source? (algae)

  • One reason that algae is not our number one fuel source is that algae biofuel is still a new concept.

  • But in the future it might replace fossil fuels.


Energy bb

Energy (BB)

  • Biomass briquettes will soon replace Coal, Natural Gases, Kerosene, Diesel, Lignite etc.

  • They are eco-friendly and renewable resources.

  • It is also cheaper than other fuels.


Benefits bb

Benefits (BB)

  • Biomass briquettes is a good substitute for coal since they are made of natural material.

  • Also because they do not put any pollution in the air like coal does.

  • Factories started using this product since they herd about its benefits.


Disadvantages bb

Disadvantages (BB)

  • The first and possibly the worst disadvantage to using biomass briquettes is that directly burning biomass as a fuel produces more greenhouse gasses that can be absorbed by the plants, making global warming worst.


Government plans bb

Government plans (BB)

  • As for our government, we really have any plans.

  • But it is available for factories.

  • In India, they are preparing to use biomass for their factories in 2012.


Not number one fuel source bb

Not number one fuel source? (BB)

  • The reason that Biomass Briquettes is not our number one fuel source is because it is still relatively new like algae.

  • But it still could replace Coal, Natural Gases, Kerosene, Diesel, Lignite etc.
