Hello Friends,

I have been wondering what the most effective use of my biomass is? Im searching to make the most buildcraft MJ possible, so my concern is: what will create more? Boimass in the biogas engine or refine the biomass into biofuel and put it in a combustion engine?

I realize that its a 10:3 ratio when you place it through a still and each produce 5 MJ/t in their particular engines. This would develop biomass better right? Any help provided is greatly appreciated.

I am not sure if this will be of any help to you - but I am sure it won't do any harm but here some additional info on [url=http://www.scienceclarified.com/Al-As/Alternative-Energy-Sources.html url] bio masses[/url]

I am not sure if this will be of any help to you - but I am sure it won't do any harm but here some additional info on bio masses.

Certain biomass (the sum total of living and dead plants, animals, and microorganisms in an area) can be used as fuel to produce heat energy. Wood, crops and crop waste, and wastes of plant, mineral, and animal matter are part of the biomass. The biomass contained in garbage can be burned to produce heat energy or can be allowed to decay and produce methane (natural gas). In western Europe, over 200 power plants burn rubbish to produce electricity. Methane can be converted to the liquid fuel methanol, and ethanol can be produced from fermentable crops such as sugar cane and sorghum. Adequate air pollution controls are necessary when biomass is burned to limit the release of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.
