biomass energy

A renewable energy source that makes use of such biofuels as methane (biogas) generated by sewage, farm, industrial, or household organic waste materials. Other biofuels include trees grown in so-called energy forests or other plants such as sugar cane grown for their energy potential. Biomass energy relies on combustion and therefore produces carbon dioxide; its use would not therefore alleviate the greenhouse effect. (Source: UVAROV)
