Bioenergy around the world

June 11, 2012
Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 12:00 am

Bioenergy is any sort of naturally grown material that has stored energy from sunlight. This could be wood, hay, grass or any of a dozen other different types of plants that have a huge, untapped energy potential. And depending on where you are in the world there are different methods of making use of this energy.

Perhaps the most obvious method of getting bioenergy is by burning the plant material. However, that’s not very efficient and other means have been developed to get at it. Digestors, machines which hold organic material and capture the energy it puts off as it decays, have been used to great effect by ranchers in the United States for instance, who have a large amount of cow dung that they can use to power their establishments. Of course there are always other options, and different regions of the world have had to look for opportunities wherever they can find them in their own native flora and fauna. One major trend though is to cut down on the amount of waste by taking organic product that would otherwise be left to decompose in the sun or in a dump and trying to capture its inner energy.Can’t get enough?
