Are you dependent of other countries/people when you want to generate electricity with this energy souce? Not in Spain and Holland, cultivate their own extensions to produce Biomass
How much electricity is generate in one plant?

Using biomass as a fuel produces air pollution in the form of carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, NOx (nitrogen oxides), VOCs (volatile organic compounds), particulates and other pollutants, in some cases at levels above those from traditional fuel sources such as coal or natural gas. Black carbon a pollutant created by incomplete combustion of fossil fuels, biofuels, and biomass is possibly the second largest contributor to global warming. In 2009 a Swedish study of the giant brown haze that periodically covers large areas in South Asia determined that it had been principally produced by biomass burning, and to a lesser extent by fossil-fuel burning. Researchers measured a significant concentration of 14C, which is associated with recent plant life rather than with fossil fuels. This all being said, biomass systems can reduce waste energy from 66% to 25% compared to traditional fossil fuels, meaning a significantly smaller amount of input material (biomass) is used, therefore having a positive effect on the global environment and use of fuel. In addition, modern biomass systems utilise biomass sources such as energy crops with a 1 year lifecycle, meaning that (carbon) emissions are able to be recycled within 1 year following their emission considerably better than the millions of years needed to recycle coal or nuclear

how does it work'?
For a biomass power station making electricity, it's pretty much like a fossil fuel power station:
For other biofuels, we may burn it to get the heat for our home, or burn it to get energy for a car engine, or for some other purpose.
Is it renewable?
Biomass is renewable, as we're going to carry on making waste products anyway.
We can always plant & grow more sugar cane and more trees, so those are renewable too.
It makes sense to use waste materials where we can.
The fuel tends to be cheap. Is that correct?--L.Doolaard (talk) 11:45, 2 October 2012 (CEST)
Less demand on the fossil fuels.
Collecting or growing the fuel in sufficient quantities can be difficult.
We burn the biofuel, so it makes greenhouse gases just like fossil fuels do. But still I think there is a difference!--L.Doolaard (talk) 11:45, 2 October 2012 (CEST)
Some waste materials are not available all year round.
wherecan you find plants of this source and why? it can be burned in a power station the station usually provides power for the sugar mill, as well as selling electricity to the surrounding area. I do not understand what you mean with this. I think you did not yet answer the question!--L.Doolaard (talk) 11:45, 2 October 2012 (CEST)
can it be used in the netherlands, why/why not?
there are biomass factors in the netherland. in delft, rotterdam. so the answer is yes because you can use solar panels an you can use the trees for biomass I think solar panels have nothing to do with this topic!--L.Doolaard (talk) 11:45, 2 October 2012 (CEST)
how does our energy source produce electricity? first they burn alochol is used to heat water to make steam I think you mix up biofuel with bio mass. It is something different! Biofuel is produced from eg sugar cane, while biomass is used as a product itself.--L.Doolaard (talk) 11:45, 2 October 2012 (CEST) it turns turbines (a turbine is like a dynamo from your bike) the turbine turn into generators then it becomes electrical power
biomass is renewable because it gets its energy from the sun and trees and crops, etc. is is renewale because you can take trees or crops whatever you want. trees and crops grows fast enough so that you can take it. biomass is the most renewable energy source of the world. it is the photosynthesis of light. the most biomass source is the wood from trees. wood is used by human to producing energy for heating and cooking for a very long time. Do they grow fast enough to provider us all with electriciity ?--L.Doolaard (talk) 18:40, 2 October 2012 (CEST)
I hope you did more than this!--L.Doolaard (talk) 18:40, 2 October 2012 (CEST) yes i did more but i save the page and it clicked on the arrow back everything was away. and i know that it was saved. --NL Daphne (talk) 20:27, 3 October 2012 (CEST)
biomass can be used in the netherlands, because when the sun is shining and you have solar panels the solar panels catch up the sun rays and you have for instance warm water. and it can also be used in spain.
the powerpoint i send to daan, so he has to powerpoint presentation.
