Best Answer

Bio energy is one of the cheapest and most readily available energy sources. It can be applied in a variety of uses. For example, bio gas can be produced by keeping wet cow dung in anaerobic conditions. The bio gas (methane) so produced, is a very good fuel which burns to give only carbon dioxide and water. Other fuels, like oil and coal, release toxic gases like sulphur dioxide. Methane gas can be burned to cook food or create steam to rotate turbines to generate electricity.

Biodegradable products do not produce energy gernerally. They degrade or decompose by bioagents or bacteria therby reducing the footprint in landfills. They can be used to make energy because when they decompose they release methane gas, which if it is captured can be used for energy (it is essentially natural gas). There are many landfills around the world where the methane gas emissions from the decomposing waste is captured and used. This is also done because methane gas is a much worse greenhouse gas than carbon dioxide.

Potentially, it can be substituted for all but the most demanding processes.

Algae were first explored as a fuel alternative in 1978 under President Jimmy Carter. Gas prices had skyrocketed, lines at the pump were endless, and the government was looking to help ease the crisis. The Aquatic Species Program, run by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, researched high output algae for the manufacture of biofuel. After testing more than 3,000 types of algae, the program concluded that the highest-yielding algae, if produced in large enough amounts, could replace fossil fuels for home heating and transportation purposes.

It is used in doing work. Work can be used in a general sense, not only mechanical work, but in fact any process that uses energy, so your question becomes a circular argument.
