The Difference between
1 Non-Renewable Resource: Biomass
1.1 How This Energy Source Works?
Biomass can be burned or
decomposed to be used as a source of
energy. The energy sources works by
the plants collection of the suns
energy. The science behind this is that
the process of photosynthesis,
chlorophyll in the plants collect the
energy from the sun and then could
be formed into energy.
1.2 In this diagram all waste is being burned into
biomass energy. Grabage, animal waste, sewage,
crops, forestry, and more can be burned down to
create biomass energy.
1.3 What resources are necessary for extracted?
Animal waste, grabage, sewage, forestry,
crops, and etc.
1.4 How is it extracted? They wood burn the collected
energy to produce heat which then became steam
power. Now steam power is used to generate
1.5 Positives? Biomass is renewable, it can be used
again. 2.Easy to convert, it is easy to change into
energy. 3.Cost less, provides more energy and cost
less. 4.Provide jobs, helps people in need for jobs.
1.5.1 Negatives? 1. Need to
maintain the crops, you need
to always maintain the crops
to make the energy that the
sun gives and the plants
2 Renewable Resource: Nuclear
2.1 How the energy source works?
Nuclear energy is created in power
plants where they burn coal, oil or
natural gas to generate heat. The is is
produced by splitting atoms. The
name of this process is called nuclear
2.2 In this diagram it is trying
to show that by spilliting
atoms it releases heat
which is turned into steam
which give nuclear energy.
2.3 What resources are necessary for
extraction? For extraction you would need
coal, oil or natural gas.
2.4 How is it extracted? The
energy would be extracted by
splitting the atom.
3.1.1 Environmental? It impacts
the life in water which
decreases the population
becuase of less food
3.1.2 Society and Health? Impacts us as humans
harmful radiations, these radiations are
harmful and may cause efficitive health
Money risk if
Reduces fossile fuels
3.2.2 Society and Health?
Cause indoor and
3.2.3 Economy? It provided
a cheap energy
