A Carbon Neutral Fuel: Understanding the advantages of Biomass

Understanding the Carbon Cycle

When biomass is used sustainably to displace fossil fuels in heating applications, the net impact over time is lower CO2 emissions in the atmosphere. Burning fossil fuels takes carbon that was stored over millions of years and releases it into our atmosphere as CO2 adding to the current carbon cycle.  Burning biomass recycles carbon that is already in our carbon cycle; the net impact, no new CO2 released into the atmosphere and hence a carbon neutral fuel.
