Renewable energy is derived from an existing natural energy source, is regenerative, and cannot be depleted.
Conventional energy sources are derived from fossil fuels (coal, oil, natural gas) and nuclear power. The consumption of fossil fuels is increasing at a very fast rate, and cannot be replaced. The use of renewable energy to create electricity and steam will help preserve our fossil fuels.
Renewable Energy Process
Mesquite Fuel and Agriculture’s biomass power generation plants provide the technologies to utilize this renewable energy and convert it to electricity.
Plants absorb carbon dioxide to photosynthesize organic compounds using solar energy. This energy can either be released by natural decay or it can be released through combustion.
Although carbon dioxide is released when the wood is heated or burnt, it is equivalent to the carbon dioxide amount taken up by the plant during growth, therefore there is no contribution towards greenhouse gas emissions.
