BIOMASS - BENEFITS OF USING BIOMASS ENERGY
When applying biomass energy to the production process, businesses can achieve many significant advantages, from costs to initial investment to creating a positive impact on the environment.
When applying biomass energy to the production process, businesses can achieve many significant advantages, from costs to initial investment to creating a positive impact on the environment. In this article, we will explore the benefits that using biomass brings to industry. Let's find out more details with Thuan Hai in the content below.
Common methods of using Biomass fuel
Biomass energy is energy produced from methods of using biomass fuel. Currently, the preferred method of using Biomass is Thermal Conversion:
Is the burning of biofuels in the presence of oxygen. Furnaces and boilers are commonly used to produce steam for use in heating and cooling systems or to turn turbines to produce electricity.
Is the combustion of a fossil fuel (such as coal or natural gas) with biomass feedstock.
Benefits from using Biomass fuel
Benefits for businesses
Reduce fuel costs: compared to fossil fuels such as gas, using biomass can help businesses save up to 50% on fuel costs.
Reduce CO2 emissions: according to the carbon cycle, the amount of CO2 emitted when burning biomass is balanced with the amount of O2 absorbed during the growth process of plants. Therefore, the net CO2 emissions are negligible. Using biomass fuel can help businesses cut CO2 emissions by more than 90%, compared to using fossil fuels.
Benefits for Society
- Minimize dependence on fossil fuels: Over-reliance on fossil fuels such as oil and coal in recent decades has led to the depletion of fuel reserves.
- Biomass energy can enhance national energy security: Biomass energy is produced from indigenous raw materials of many Asian countries, this fuel has great potential in reducing dependence on coal and fossil fuels, enhancing national energy security.
- Encourage the participation of small and medium-sized enterprises: Unlike fuel oil and gas, or even coal, biomass energy production will not require investment and construction of integrated processing plants. Therefore, investing in biomass energy can open up opportunities for domestic companies to participate.
- Improving agricultural economic efficiency: In addition to the function of providing food, the agricultural economic sector can now become an industrial raw material, provide clean energy for society, and contribute to reducing greenhouse gases and toxic gases. (Over the years, Thuan Hai has realized the potential of biomass energy in contributing to the development of the country's agriculture.)
When put on the scale, using biomass energy will help reduce about 70% of CO2 gas and 30% of harmful gases compared to coal and gasoline, because biomass energy contains a very small amount of sulfur, which contains 11% oxygen, so it burns cleaner. Besides, biomass energy biodegrades quickly, causing little pollution to water and soil sources. Biomass energy when discharged into soil is biodegraded four times faster than coal or oil fuel, thus greatly reducing soil and groundwater pollution.
Therefore, using biomass energy helps reduce environmental pollution and greenhouse gases, helping to prevent global climate change.
Biofuels and sustainable development issues
Raw materials for biofuel production are prioritized for selection with the criteria of not being used as food, having high productivity and fuel conversion efficiency, and having the potential to be grown on nutrient-poor soils and abandoned ponds and lakes. . In particular, this type of raw material must have a low price like agricultural, forestry and processing industry scraps. At the same time, develop biofuels to ensure energy security and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Biomass will play an extremely important role in the development of energy industries in the world today and is expected to remain dominant in developing countries for a long time to come.
Thuan Hai is proud to be a pioneer in the field of Biomass fuel production and supply, aiming for the important goal of Net Zero. With a total of 6 factories in strategic locations such as Dong Thap, Can Tho, Vinh Long, Long An, Binh Phuoc, and Quang Nam, we are proud of our diverse production capabilities and supply of Biomass fuel sources. stably reaching 1 million tons per year.
