Biomass is organic matter of recent origin. Biomass, which is also known as biofuels, do not use fossil fuels to produce energy. The carbon dioxide, which is liberated when energy is generated from biomass, is equaled out by that absorbed during the fuels production. Biofuels are produced from organic matter, which can either be from plants directly or indirectly from industries and commercial sectors. Biomass can be used in the home environment; stoves can be 80percent more efficient. Wood burning stoves can be fitted with a boiler to provide domestic hot water and central heating via radiators. Hence producing energy form biomass has both environmental and economic advantages. It is cost effective and it can also contribute to waste management, by harnessing energy from products, which are often disposed of.
