Biomass gaining in Popularity
Biomass is material which originates from living or previously living plant or animal matter tha can be converted in to fibres. Wood, such as forest residues, yard trimmings, wood chips and municipal solid waste are the most prolific form of biomass, but there are others including: chicken litter, sugarcane residue, bamboo, corn, hemp, some grasses, vegetables and a variety of tree species. Some of these materials are grown on an industrial scale for use as biofuels as a replacement for fossil fuels. Materials can be left to rot and the resulting methane gas used as fuel and others can be fermented to produce ethanol or bio diesel. However wood remains the largest biomass energy source and is burned to produce heat and energy.
