A Review on Production of Biomass Energy Power Plant

Rohit Kumar, Rajat Pandey


The utilization of renewable energy sources is becoming progressively vital, in the event that we are to accomplish the progressions required to address the impact of global warming. Biomass is the most widely recognized type of renewable energy. Latterly much consideration has been centered on recognizing reasonable biomass species, which can give high-vitality yields, to replace conventional fossil fuel energy sources. The type of biomass required is largely determined by the energy conversion process and the form in which the energy is required. The present review paper presents the production of biomass energy power plant and its pros and cons in producing the energy power plant.
