Building equipment that creates opportunities, Morbark helps customers create success in the biomass market. Like its name suggests, biomass is the use of a biological organism as a source of energy or heat. This can come from a wide assortment of sources; however, among the most common are wood fiber, manure, crops, municipal solid waste and algae.
As we move further into the 21st century, energy needs are becoming more prevalent. Consumers are becoming more informed, and energy needs are widely debated, with energy cost and energy source being two driving forces. Many consumers sit on either side of the aisle, and the debate remains, what is more important, energy costs, sustainability, or environmental friendliness?
This is where the opportunity for biomass arises.
Biomass energy has been noted by experts to be beneficial for numerous reasons:
- Biomass energy contributes to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, which damage the ozone layer.
- Biomass helps decrease reliance on fossil fuels like oil and coal.
- Biomass is a renewable resource.
- Biomass materials are abundant.
Fossil fuel and nuclear energy are not going anywhere any time soon; however, with growing support in the United States and favorable statewide green-energy legislation, the future for biomass is bright. When efficiently collected and processed, biomass is affordable and reliable.
