bio- life mass- quantity of matter
Fun Fact- Vine Fuel In Sweden, some new cars run on E-85 fuel (85% ethanol) made from the vines in southern Europe. The biofuel is made instead of wine. Manufactures say that the 15% gasoline content helps cars start better in very col weather. A mix!
Fun Fact: Thirty-Five cubic feet of waste can light a 100- watt bulb for 6 continues hours, cook three full meals for a family of six, and drive a car nine miles. (10-15 km)
- this picture is a non-renewable fuel
Biomass is burning plants and natural materials
Therefore, biomass is reusable and is basically unlimited
Also if you need to you can use animal waste
So with that farmers can grow plants just for energy
A biomass power plant typically requires 15 to 100 acres of land
The area is usually landscaped, and is located away from the public
Some good sights for plant are in the Midwest and places like Pennsylvania for the East coast
Biomass can be turned into biodiesel, which can run cars
Biodiesel is made from oils of plants, like sunflowers
Biodiesel usually run large vehicles like tractors and buses
Biodiesel can run some types of regular cars though
Biomass burning fields can be easily accessed from car.
