Clean Tech Transit Cleantech Transit, Inc. (OTCPK:CLNO)

Biomass is becoming increasingly popular energy source on global scale, with many countries opening new biomass facilities. Wood is still the most popular form of biomass on global level, though there are many ongoing researches that aim to find the adequate solutions to turn waste and garbage into useful form of energy. One of the main benefits of biomass fuel over fossil fuel can be best understood in terms of greenhouse gasses.

While both biomass fuels and fossil fuels release about the same amount of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere when burned, there is a distinct difference in the effect they each have on the atmosphere. Burning fossil fuel releases carbon dioxide that was captured during photosynthesis literally millions of years ago. As it is burned, carbon dioxide is released as a new greenhouse gas, a 'new' carbon dioxide. Biomass fuel, on the other hand, releases carbon dioxide that was recently captured during photosynthesis and it tends to equal itself out. Nothing 'new' is being sent into the atmosphere, thus greatly reducing the greenhouse gas effect on the ozone layer.
