Environmental Impact of Biomass

Energy market dynamics, especially fluctuations in petroleum and natural gas prices, have long affected the profitability of agricultural management. Renewable propellant standard programs originating under the Energy policy Act of 2005 and the Energy ability and Security Act of 2007, the part of U.S corn production supplying the ethanol market has grown from 70.5% in 2001 to 23.2% in 2008. This deviation of corn from export markets has had likely impacts on global food prices. The automotive exhaust after treatment systems market is evaluated to be 141,366.05 Thousand units in 2015, and is projected to extend 206,430.48 thousand units by 2020, growing at a CAGR of 7.87% during the forecast period.

Using biomass for energy can have both positive and negative impacts on the environment. Using biomass for energy provides an alternative to using fossil fuels like coal, petroleum, or natural gas. Burning fossil fuels and burning biomass releases carbon dioxide (CO2), a green house gas, but when the plants that are the source of biomass are grown, a nearly equivalent amount of CO2 is captured through photosynthesis.
