Course Number and Title

TSM/ABE 325: Biorenewable Systems

Instructor

Thomas Brumm

Description

Biorenewable systems utilize organic material of recent biological origin to create energy. Algae and corn are examples of biomasses that are utilized in biorenewable systems. Algae and corn are opportunities to replace gasoline and diesel in order to lower the carbon footprint.

Climate change “is a change in the typical or average weather of a region or city” (Dunbar, 2015). Biorenewable systems that utilize different biomasses have different impacts on climate change. Figure 1 shows the increasing global temperature over the past 134 years. The increase in global temperature is considered a negative side effect of global warming.

This document analyzes the current methods of measuring biorenewable systems impact on the Earth’s climate. Specifically, the biomasses corn and algae will be discussed.
