Biomass evaluation

Because of new knowledge about the future energy situation, the evaluation of plant sorts for the earning of energy has to be recalculated.



  Not oil but carbon counts


Until now, a plat was found better when it was possible to press more vegetable oil out. But when the photovoltaic world market increases to more than 100 W Peak per year and human, refinement of the biomass by hydrogen from electrolysis will be very interesting.

The plants will not be seen not any more as energy source, but as carbon source. Carbon to convert hydrogen into more easy to transport Methan oder Methanol.

  Maybe other plants


It is just right now difficult to find data around this theme. Dry measure yield per ha, how much vegetable oil can be pressed out, are easy to find data. But the question how much yield in carbon is difficult to answer.

Maybe there are different plants with more yield in carbon, than what we prefer now for biomass cultivation.

  Key questions for a future after peak oil


The Energy Watch Group shows, peakoik is history and happened 2006. PEGE creates a catalog of questions for a path to our future energy system.

Change energy source: plug-in hybrid
Since decades, our cars are using less and less fuel, but the world consume of oil goes up. Now after peak oil, we need a radical change of the energy source.


Energy usage car changing
Until now, the consumption was only measured in litres of an crude oil product. The new norm is the earth surface to produce the necessary energy.


Swap electricity oil
Even when Plug-in Hybrid cars use less than 1 litre fuel from crude oil for 100km, even this reduction is in the long run not enough. More potentail for reduction by electric power.


Stretch by hydrogen
Future vision solar electric power plentifulness. Shortage of crude oil and biomass. The logical consequence: Biomass and crude oil refined by hydrogen from solar electricity.


Biomass efficiency
With the example wood increasing the potential of biomass for our mobility from the present beginnings to the time with large amounts of electricity from renewable energy.


Methan Methanol Hydrogen
After a preselection for this 3 fuel sorts has to be evaluated which one is cheapest for the cars drivers in 20 years.


Heavy oil castling
From all vehicles are only big ships suitable for hydrogen. This is because a tank with 125,000 times more volume has only 2,500 times more surface.
