The combustion of biomass has a negative balance of carbon dioxide (CO2) does not contribute to global warming - because the amounts of carbon dioxide (CO2) released during combustion of biomass bound again by plants to create the biomass and also the growth of the root contributes to the negative carbon balance because they do not cut it as the fruit
The minimal presence of sulfur in biomass contributes significantly to reducing emissions of sulfur dioxide (SO2) is responsible for acid rain.
For the production of pellets used in logging residues, wood or agricultural products without any added chemicals, which when burnt release essentially as carbon dioxide are absorbed in their life so they do not pollute the environment.
If biomass is domestic energy source, its use of energy contributes significantly to reducing dependence on imported fuels and improving the trade balance in securing energy supply and saving foreign exchange.
The energy use of biomass in a region increases employment in rural areas through the use of alternative crops (various types of rapeseed, olive, cardoon, reed) creating alternative markets for traditional crops (sunflower, etc.), and contain population to their homes, thus contributing to socio-economic development of the region.
Studies have shown that the production of liquid biofuels have a positive effect on employment in both rural and industrial space.
