Biomass is a renewable energy resource that can be used to produce heat or electricity. Although burning biomass releases carbon dioxide (CO2), which is a greenhouse gas, it is renewable.
Renewable energy is a vital part of the effort to create a sustainable future. It doesn’t produce pollution or greenhouse gases, and it doesn’t use up finite resources like fossil fuels. Renewable energy comes from sources that are renewable, meaning they can be replaced or replenished. The most common renewable energy sources are solar, wind and hydro power.
