Biomass

Collecting a diverse energy source (while preventing Forest Fires)

Biomass—in the form of organic materials from plants for animals—is a renewable, carbon-neutral fuel source offering lower costs than fossil fuels. Biomass contains stored energy from the sun—collected though photosynthesis and released in the form of heat. 

Extremely diverse, sources of biomass energy can be found in a variety of sources—from garbage and manure, to crops and forest debris. 

We love the idea of turning existing forest debris into usable energy.  It prevents decomposing brush from releasing harmful methane gas and carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.  And clearing highly flammable debris from the forest floor reduces the spread of forest fires.
