Biomass? What?

I have never heard of biomass. But when I heard of it and looked into it I found it very interesting. Biomass is the use of agricultural waste, bark, and wood chips to make energy. These supplies can be burned in an incinerator to heat water to make steam which then turns a turbine to make electricity! Super cool right? And easy to do! Biomass also includes energy crops like hay, straw, and other crops grown mostly for renewable fuel. I think this is a great resource and should be used everywhere and anywhere!!!
