1. What is Biomass?
Biomass is plant and animal materials that can be used to generate electricity and fuels. Biomass can be used for power generation in the electricity sector and for space heating in residential, and commercial buildings. Biomass can also be used directly in the manufacturing of a variety of products and be converted to liquid forms for use as transportation fuels. Learn more about biomass.
