The Carbon Cycle

Biomass is a renewable resource. Renewable resources can be made over time by natural processes like the carbon cycle. The carbon cycle describes the way plants use sunlight and carbon from the atmosphere to grow. The carbon becomes part of the plant, and the plants can be changed into biofuels. Biofuels are fuels made from plant materials. When biofuels are burned, the carbon goes back to the atmosphere to once again be used by plants to grow. An animation about the Carbon Cycle can be found on the SUBI YouTube channel.
