1 Bioenergy (Is bio sustainable?)

„Bio“, this sounds environmentally friendly, renewable, regenerative. But is energy from biomass actually sustainable? And is biogas harmless, when released into the environment?

Bioenergy is neither per se good nor per se bad…

As usual, good or bad depends on many things. As a matter of fact, the generation of biomass can release gases that are significantly more climate-wrecking than CO<sub>2</sub>. But nonetheless, the use of bioenergy is a worthwhile piece within the big picture of an exit from nuclear and fossil fuels.
At this station you will learn when biogas is problematic and in which scenarios it really is sustainable.
