How can forests be used to produce biomass energy?

    Forests have been used for thousands of years for biomass energy. People have been burning wood for heat since they discovered fire. However, there are far better uses for the earth’s forests than using them for biomass energy– they convert CO2 to Oxygen so that we can breathe.

    Forests can be used to produce biomass energy by thinning out excessive tree growth from forests, which allows trees to grow faster, increases biodiversity, and reduces the amount of carbon dioxide from controlled burns. Waste from logging and the wood products industry can also be used to produce biomass. These wood products can be used to produce thermal energy, liquid biofuels, electricity, or even a combination of thermal and electric energy.
