Biomass Frequently Asked Questions
Frequently Asked Questions
So, what is biomass?
If you are working to define biomass, then you need to look at the most basic biomass definition. Biomass is quite simply organic matter that is made by either animals or plants that has energy stored within it from the sun, which can then be converted into some type of bioenergy. It can be anything that is made by a microorganism that has the capability to be broken down to produce energy that can be used for products such as fuel, electricity or heat.

What are the benefits of using biomass energy?
There are numerous benefits to using biomass energy. The biggest benefit to using this type of energy is how much biomass energy has the potential to correct environmental issues. With as much Carbon Dioxide (CO2) as Nile Fiber™ can sequester and correct, we can quite literally start reversing some of the damage that human beings as a whole have caused to the planet. Plus there is no negative environmental footprint left behind from planting acres of this beneficial biomass. The long-term effect of our crop is leaving the ground in better condition after planting than the original land due to all of the benefits that the root system colony gives to the soil.
Another benefit of using biomass energy is the fact that the energy is totally renewable. Nile Fiber™ can be used indefinitely and re-harvested each year to use again, only needing one planting every 20+ years. It has a tremendous growth rate, high yields and grows perennially without human intervention, plus it does not spread beyond the original planting, making it the perfect plant for unusual spaces, as well as fallow lands and pastures.
The benefit that Nile Fiber™ can offer the economy may be one of the best benefits available to energy and materials industry today. Nile Fiber™ is a cost-effective investment to grow and manufacture, when compared to, for instance, coal excavation vs. torrefaction. However, when you add in the fact that special machinery does not need to be purchased to harvest and process the end-results, then you can add another dimension of cost efficiency to the product. Finally, when you add in all of the uses that Nile Fiber™ offers, such as being able to be used for anything from fuel to building materials, then you can also add in another way that this product can benefit industries who use it.
What is biomass energy?
To define biomass energy, you have to look at how many different forms of energy different forms of biomass can be broken down into. Nile Fiber™ has the ability to be broken down into many different products, helping people around the world, making it an ideal form of biomass energy. It can be used for products such as building materials and chemicals, for energy such as fuels and electricity, or even for environmental protection by way of reducing soil erosion, phytoremediation polluted sites, or sequestering carbon dioxide from all of the fossil fuels that we currently use. Biomass energy is the one form of energy that can have a huge impact without actually taking up a huge amount of space, and Nile Fiber™ allows for that space to be even smaller than other forms of biomass, this due in part to the higher yields per acre vs. other biomass crops.
What is renewable energy?
Renewable energy is a sustainable form of energy that can easily be made or reproduced without a negative environmental impact. That is part of what makes Nile Fiber a clear choice for many of the world’s industries. Many products that are able to be made from Nile Fiber™ are able to be harvested each and every year, and the yield per acre is much greater than standard tree products, allowing for a greater yearly harvest than any other renewable form of biomass that is currently being used.
What sets TreeFree Biomass Solutions apart from other biomass manufacturers?
TreeFree Biomass Solutions is easily steps ahead of the competition with the discovery of just how incredible Arundo Donax really can be when used as a biomass product. It is a perennial plant that does not need to be replanted for 20+ years, it is harvestable annually, it is sturdy against bad climate conditions, it requires less fertilizer unlike its counterparts, it has no natural enemies and it has the ability to help combat a major environmental hazard—Carbon Dioxide—that has seen few improvements in recent years.
TreeFree’s product, Nile Fiber™, also has the added benefit of being able to be used with current farming equipment. This means that in order to farm this type of biomass, no new farming equipment have to be purchased or special processing plants need to be built. This saves time and money, especially when you look at the struggles of an already stretched farming economy. Additionally Nile Fiber™ offers advantages to farmers in comparison to other crops. Investing in Nile Fiber™ as a feedstock will save manufacturers and the consumer’s money, making this form of energy and product the most cost effective energy crop available!
