Biomass is the source of Bioenergy. It is organic matter in the form of wood, leaves, grasses, seeds, and all the other forms that plants and animals can take as living or recently dead organisms and parts thereof. Bioenergy is the term used to refer to the energy, heat or electricity that is created by burning biofuels. In many cases, it must be processed in some way to convert it to a usable fuel that is capable of producing energy. Such forms include pellets used to fire a generator in the same way that coal is used today, alcohol that is burned as motor fuel, and methane gas, which can be used in much the same way as natural gas. This session discusses more about biomass and bioenergy.
