Biomass Energy

WHAT IS BIOMASS ENERGY?

Biomass Energy or Bioenergy is a renewable energy source, that can lower your carbon footprint by over 80% when done correctly. We utilize biomass boiler and combustion technology that will be able to combust various biomass found in the vicinity of your plants (or factories).

IS BIOMASS RENEWABLE?

If it is done right, yes it is. But that is only if it is done right. Tasma only sources biomass from legal and sustainable providers. At Tasma we focus mostly on agricultural and industrial waste materials, as opposed to biomass from natural forests. This helps to ensure that deforestation and overharvesting is not a danger. It is also the lowest carbon option, significantly reducing your company’s carbon footprint.

BIOMASS VS NATURAL GAS AND OTHER FOSSIL FUELS

Fossil fuels are not a renewable nor sustainable energy source because they had to be formed under the earth for millennia and we have no hope of replenishing our fossil fuel stores in this generation, or the next. We will run out, and we won’t be able to replenish our stores.

Also, each time you burn fossil fuels, you release CO2 that has been trapped under the earth for millions of years. When you burn biomass you just release the CO2 that it absorbed during its life-cycle, creating an energy source that can be much closer to carbon-neutral.

Your carbon footprint, when you use the right type of biomass fuels, can be lowered to only 100 kg/mWh, compared to natural gas which emits 437 kg/mwh, and coal which would typically emit 1018 kg/mwh.

67%

Nearly ⅔ consumers believe that they have a responsibility to choose products that are good for the environment and society.

ADVANTAGES

The advantages are manifold: it will save you money, save the environment, vastly improve your customer appeal and perceived value (nearly ⅔ consumers believe that they “have a responsibility to choose products that are good for the environment and society.”), it will provide you with an energy system that is sustainable and predictable through the changing market, and it reduces both your carbon footprint and the amount of waste in landfills.

DISADVANTAGES

The disadvantages mostly stem from irresponsible application. If you don’t get biomass from reliable renewable sources then deforestation is a real danger, and the wrong type of biofuel can release much higher levels of carbon into the environment. This is why, at Tasma, we are incredibly dedicated to ensuring renewable, sustainable, eco-friendly energy sources.
