Biomass, Energy Potentials, Heat Sources.


Comparative analysis of energy potentials from different biomass sources were investigated to determine the energy potential stored in them: biomass materials used were cattle manure, wood and dry grass. Instruments used for this investigation includes: coffee can, thermometer, stop watch, heat source etc. simple heat equation was used to evaluate the heat potential in each material. Results shows that heat energy of cattle manure was 0.33264788J, wood was 0.1661868J and that of dry grass was 0.1001J. Showing that cattle manure has higher energy potential than wood and grass, meaning it will have more application for energy generation.
