What is biomass and why use it?
Biomass is material that is derived from living, or recently living biological organisms. In the energy context it is often used to refer to plant material and the biomass we will be using form of straw (cereals and oilseed rape); with a proportion of other biomass (e.g. miscanthus and wood chippings).
Biomass is an organic material in solid or liquid form that can be converted into electricity or clean-burning fuels in an environmentally friendly and sustainable manner. It is accepted throughout the world as a renewable replacement for fossil fuels, and its use in energy production contributes towards the reduction of greenhouse gases.
