|Description||Organic Waste to Resources Research and Pilot Project Report. Biomass energy, or bioenergy, is not a new source of energy. Organic matter, like wood, has
been burned to generate heat ever since humans learned how to make fire. Today, new
technologies allow us to harness the energy in animal and plant biomass to generate electricity
and fuel vehicles. When the biomass resources, such as wood, are grown and harvested
sustainably, the energy derived from them is considered renewable. Typically biomass energy
production is divided into the categories of biopower (for electricity generation) and biofuels
(for petroleum substitutes).
