Forestry Biomass refers to organic matter that has stored energy through the process of photosynthesis. This matter can be converted to energy through combustion, which releases the carbon dioxide stored in the plant material.
Wood is still used extensively for energy in both household situations, and in industry, particularly in the timber, paper and pulp and other forestry-related industries. Other wood fibre residues from the timber industry such as bark, sawdust and shavings can be used to generate wood chip and wood pellets for the energy market where they are used to raise steam, which is used as a by product to generate electricity.
