What is biomass energy?



  1. 0 Votes

    Biomass energy is the energy derived from plant-based materials, such as wood, food crops, grassy and woody plants, residues from agriculture or forestry, oil-rich algae, and methane.  Biomass can be burned for fuel, used in power production, or used as a substitute for petroleum in the making of some products.  Its use has the potential to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, lessen dependence on foreign oil (in the U.S.), and support the agriculture industry by burning its wastes and other byproducts.

    Biomass is organic matter used to make fuels and chemicals as well as provide energy in the form of heat or electricity. Examples of biomass include wood, plants, animal waste, and organic compounds from municipal and industrial waste. There are several benefits to using biomass energy: reduced dependence on foreign oil, support of U.S. agricultural and forest-product industries, and reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.
