Biomass is an energy feedstock which, unlike fossil fuels, contributes no additional CO2 amounts to the atmosphere. Carbon dioxide emitted during combustion of biomass is absorbed during the plant growth. The research results show that 1 hectare (ha) of hemp assimilates approximately 2.5 t of CO2. Hemp is characterized by high biomass yield reaching even 15 t/ha.
