Biomass is a renewable energy source derived from biological material, such as plants, wood and farming by-products. As an energy source, it can be used directly via combustion to produce heat, or indirectly after converting it to various forms of biofuel.
Biomass energy has a dual effect, depending on where and how it is produced. If generated correctly it can be produced in ways that reduce global warming, as opposed to increasing it. It can help clean up the air, water, soil, and protect wildlife, or it can degrade lands, forests, water, and harm public health.
