Biomass is another form of renewable energy that produces electricity, fuel, and heat. Biomass converts animal waste or plant matter to cooking fuels, vehicle gases or electricity.  In the same way we use petroleum we pump from the ground after a million years or so, bioenergy uses solar energy which was stored in biomass during photosynthesis.

About 1.5 billion of the world’s population use biomass as their primary resource. In the United States, the application for biomass is primarily in concert with agriculture, but the potential for expansion as a partner in waste disposal is unlimited.  The technology is simply to combine organic waste in a digester tank with the introduction of certain catalytic ingredients.  As these organic materials decompose they outgas and produce plenty of heat in the process.  We can recover the heat with exchangers to produce hot water and use the methane gas in generators for electricity or in vehicles for transportation of farm operation.  Anything from almond husks to cow pies can be used.  The final decomposed material can still be used as a fertilizer component.
