Biomass Fuel Helps with Net Zero Emissions Target

By on Apr 4, 2021 in Biomass fuel, Blog |

Biomass fuel will play a large role in net zero emissions targets set out by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS).

A document published by the BEIS includes a Biomass Strategy in 2022, with biomass being defined as any material of biological origin which is used as a fuel for bioenergy.

This includes conventional combustion, gasification, energy from waste and low-carbon fuels like biofuels or hydrogen, or in products such as chemicals, bio-plastics and materials.

New Biomass Strategy Explained

A spokesperson for BEIS told industry press,

“Biomass has played a prominent role in our efforts to decarbonise the economy and the context for its use has changed since our initial 2012 strategy.

“We have launched a call for evidence to look at how and where sustainable biomass can best be used”

“To reflect our ambitious target of eliminating our contribution to climate change by 2050, we have launched a call for evidence to look at how and where sustainable biomass can best be used.”

According to recent statistics, a significant portion of the supply of biomass consists of wastes and residues (such as sawmill waste).
