There are several types of biomass, organic materia, such as plants, agricultural and forestry residues and the organic component of municipal and industrial waste.
They can now be used to produce fuels, chemicals and power.
Wood has been used to provide heat for thousands of years. This flexibility has led to increased use of biomass based technologies.
Biomass technologies use organic materia to release stored energy from the sun. The process used depends on the type of biomass and end-use destination.
