Biomass

Pros

Made locally with minimul cost

Renewable

Does not depend on Fossil Fuels

CO2 neutral

Promotes energy independence

Converts waste into fuel

Keeps Uk farming land cultivated

Offers hope of rual regeneration

Produces green house gasses

Cons

Large areas of land are needed to create enough electricity to make biomass efficient.

Some materials are not available all year around.  This is the biggest issue with crop wastes

The geography of a country limits the types of biomass used to create energy.

If biomass is over used, than deforestation and other environmental problems can develop.  This has happened in less developed countries that use a lot of wood for heat.
