Welcome to

- The beginnings -
The archaea and cyanobacteria mark the beginning. They are the tough pioneers of life and give the planet its blue color. With the first action of bioenergy about three billion years ago, the earth has changed constantly. In the flow of constant climate change, bioenergy has adapted and shaped the look of its home. Our species has reached the global connection of the biosphere in real time - with all the consequences. The focus of this story is on the elegant use of biomass in harmony with our home organism Gaia.
Table of Contents
- The boom time -
The story begins in the late nineties. BiomassMuse is surfing on a big wave of the energy transition and under the fertile framework numerous chapters on gaseous, liquid and solid bioenergy are growing up. Insights into the cultivation of promising energy crops, as well as processes and technologies for the production of biogas, biofuels and wood pellets. This is followed by chapters on the legal texts of the energy transition, especially the EEG, EEWärmeG, RED I and KWKG. During this boom time for the renewables family, there is rapid growth in the electricity sector.
The development from the beginning
- The Purification -
Just as the sun follows the moon or summer follows autumn, the EE family is also affected by a rapid change in the weather and social climate change. In particular, the biofuels are in a purification phase in the tens of years and get the buck in Germany for everything dark about industrialization and globalization (tank vs plate, deforestation, ILUC etc.). The result: Since 2008 we have not been able to increase the energy turnaround in the transport sector and we still rely on that to 95 percent Black gold (imported petroleum).
Insight into the sustainability debate
- The future -
Just as autumn follows winter, spring follows winter, and an ice age is followed by a warm period. And so since the rebellion the millennials and zoomers (FFF, ER), as well as the proclamation of the Green deals for Europe, the use of biomass is again a tailwind. With the wings of the bioeconomy (circular bioeconomy) the material and energetic use of biomass is experiencing another spring and at the beginning of the twenties everything calls for renewal and Next Generation.
Bioenergy of tomorrow

Climate-friendly heating with biomass

Thank you for the article on regenerative heat through bioenergy by Thomas Handrich from Alternative Haustechnik. As energy demand continues to rise, fossil energy sources such as coal, natural gas and oil are becoming scarcer. In addition, fossil fuels are seen as one of the causes of global warming. In order to be able to guarantee an affordable energy supply in the future,

Control energy market: Green electricity is used as a flexible minute and secondary reserve

The balancing energy market is often still one of the great unknowns for operators of decentralized, renewable energy systems. However, a stranger who has a great fascination and attraction. The comparatively young energy market for balancing energy is attracting growing interest especially from operators of biogas plants and wood-fired power plants. Why? The strength of renewable bioenergy is

Alkar: Presentation of an alternative energy plant

The bioenergy community has been looking for alternative energy crops at least since the critical debates about tank or plate, corn (reaction = corn lid), and the accusation of rising food prices due to bioenergy. Depending on whether you want to obtain a gaseous, liquid or solid bioenergy carrier, there are different candidates for cultivation. In

Do we still need bio-fuel if we rely on electromobility?

Many thanks to Berhard Ahlers for this exciting article, which examines the two most important alternatives for an energy transition in the fuel market. The energy transition and renewable energy have become an integral part of our worldview. The share of renewable electricity generation exceeded the 20 percent mark last year and is being expanded further. Electromobility enjoys

Ideas between bioenergy and biomass

Building a bioeconomy is one of the challenges that unites today's generations. In the zeitgeist of the energy and raw material turnaround, the switch from fossil fuels (coal, crude oil, natural gas) to renewable biomass is one of the steps towards starting a sustainable circular economy.
