Biomass

  Thai language  

   Biomass is natural resource for energy production. It can be used in producing fuel which is from agriculture residues such as,

       • Chaff from husked paddy.
       • Bagasse from sugar process.
       • Wood scrap from wood processing or almost eucalyptus and some of the planted forests.
       • Palm residue from palm oil industries.
       • Cassava residue from cassava flour processing.
       • Cob from husked corn.
       • Husk and coconut shell from residues of coconut milk and oil manufacturing. 
       • Brew’s yeast from alcohol processing.

      Biomass can be changed into energy because plants use carbon dioxide and water to convert solar  
      energy to starch and sugar to reserve in its bodies, through photosynthesis in growth stage. Thus,
      the thermal energies are beneficially obtained when biomass is burned into fuel.

      Thailand has the cheap source of fuel, if transport costs are not too expensive due to long distance.
      Biomass has reduced fuel imports from foreign countries and has generated income to local
      people. Moreover, the proper technology of production have to be no pollution and no green house
      effect. Project biomass development leads to production of new fuel alternative and participation of
      communities as well.
