Discover why using biomass is so economical, innovative and ecological.

Biomass suitable for combustion is any solid biological substance intended for energy purposes. In addition to crops grown expressly for energy purposes, biomass includes all agricultural and forestry products including the residues of agricultural processes and forest-management, the waste of agro-alimentary products destined for human consumption and the non-chemically-treated residues of the woodworking and paper industries. Its short replacement time makes biomass a renewable energy source because the exploitation time of the substance is comparable to its regeneration time.

Since the concept of the renewability of an energy source also depends on its environmental sustainability, it is necessary that biomasses, with particular reference to those of forest origin, are the result of practices that have negligible or no environmental impact (such as forest maintenance).
