Biomass is a renewable energy source that consists of organic materials.

These organic materials can be either living or dead, below or above ground.

Examples of biomass include:

  • animal waste
  • crops
  • grasses
  • roots
  • trees

Biomass is indeed a form of alternative energy as it will replace fossil fuels which produce greenhouse gas emissions.

Without a doubt, developing biomass is a great way to help stop climate change.
