Biomass

Is fuel that is developed from organic materials, a renewable and sustainable source of energy used to create electricity or other forms of power. We understand the Biomass is a renewable source of fuel to produce energy because:

  • Biomass is one of the environment’s greatest allies. Its use does not generate greenhouse gases, which helps reduce CO2 emissions into the atmosphere and reduces climate change.
  • Biomass is a renewable energy with a plus: as organic waste and waste that can be used energetically is included within biomass, therefore energy is created from materials that, initially, are discarded by industry or agriculture, among others, thus contributing to the circular economy.

NMR’s is developing an integrated Biomass to Power Generation Project, as first step in this field.
