The term biomass refers to the organic material that comes from materials or organic residues (animal or plants), transformed throughout the years by the sun.
Biomass can be produced naturally in the form of residues (forestall, solid urban waste, etc.) or it can also be produced by energy crops.
Biomass-based heat can be used for direct heating for example in buildings, for the production of vapours in industrial processes or for its transformation in electric energy, obtaining up to 50 MW.
The main components in a biomass station are:
- Heat exchangers
Biomass can be also used for the production of biogases or biofuels, such as bioethanol or biodiesel.
Co-combustion is the use of biomass, in a precise proportion, to reduce the consumption of coal and therefore reduce the emission of CO2 in power stations.
