Biomass and Bioenergy

Bioenergy is the chemical energy contained in organic matter (biomass) which can be converted into energy forms that we can use directly, such as electricity, heat and liquid fuel. Biomass is any organic matter of recently living plant or animal origin. Unlike coal, the organic matter is not fossilised. Traditionally mainly woody biomass has been used for bioenergy; however more recent technologies have expanded the potential resources to those such as agricultural residues, oilseeds and algae. These advanced bioenergy technologies allow for the sustainable development of the bioenergy industry, without competing with the traditional agricultural industry for land and resources. Bioenergy plants can range from small domestic heating systems to multi-megawatt industrial plants requiring hundreds of thousands of tonnes of biomass fuel each year. A variety of technologies exists to release and use the energy contained in biomass. They range from combustion technologies that are well proven and widely used around the world for generating electricity generation, to emerging technologies that convert biomass into liquid fuels for road, sea and air transport.
