Hello, my name is Carlos Gas and I live in Spain. I like a lot the chocolate. I like the football and basketball. I study in the Lope De Vega. I have one brother and one dog
There are the six last questions of the nederland exchange:
-How does it work? The harnessing of energy from biological mass (biomass) is a simple process. The waste wood and other sources are gathered in big trucks. The waste is then transported to a biomass plant. Here, the waste is burned, the heat created is used to boil water and the energy from the steam is used to rotate turbines and generators.
-Where can you find "plants" of this source and why? Around the world, we can find Biomass plants in: The United States: Wood parts. Mauritiues: sugar cane residue. Southeast Asia: Rice husks. Argentina: Cereal producer. United Kingdom: Animal agriculture.
Can it be used in Spain, why?/why not? We can use Biomass in Spain by the existence of a forest developed sector and the population who facilitates the use of the domestic Biomass. In Spain, we can find Biomass in:
Andalusia: is the autonomous community with more consumption of Biomass. In Navarra and Burgos: Biomass plants burn straw to generate electricity.
-Is it expensive?
No, it isn’t very expensive because reduces dependence on oil.
-What is the effect on the environment?
It cause a little impact in the environment.
-Are you dependent of other countries/people when you want to generateelectricity with this energy source?
Yes, I am dependent of other countries with this energy source because in Spain there are few biomass plants.
-How much electricity is generated in one plant?
The largest biomasspower plant in North America produces 140 MW, uses sugar cane fiber andrecycled urban wood, to supply renewable electricity for nearly 60,000 homes.The facility reduces dependence on oil by more than one million barrels peryear, and by recycling sugar cane and wood waste, preserves landfill space inurban communities in Florida.
-What are the advantages and the disadvantages of this source ? -one of the disadvantages is that this energy source need edible crops to burn it and makes expensivethe food. -other disadvantage is the cutting of forests to make the cultives of the crops. -one of the advantages is reduce the dependence on oil -other advantage is that is sustainable and renewable.
-Is it sustainable?
Biomass is a sustainable fuel, that can deliver a significant reduction in net carbon emissions when compared with fossil fuels.
