Harnessing Biomass Energy for a Sustainable Future: A Review

Rakesh Kumar Ghosh Avisek Tiwari and Deb Prasad Ray


Biomasses are one of the most important renewable carbon-negative alternative sources of energy. Biomass energy is one of the best alternatives to be used as a substitute for fossil fuels. Biomass functions as a sort of natural battery for storing solar energy. Biomass derived energies are clean because biomass contains low N and S contents compared to the fossil fuels. Further, use of biomass energy is a ‘no-net’ carbon emission process. Hence, use of biomass energy offers a win-win situation. In this paper, we tried to emphasize the present and future scenario of biomass-based energy with a special emphasis on Indian perspective. The available technologies, government policies and already existing market have been discussed in this review. Biomass energy holds the key of possibility to light every household which have no access to power. Biomass energy is the one of the best way to a sustainable energy system of the future.
