Biomass for use as a biofeedstock encompasses a huge diversity of materials, from farming and forestry residues (beet pulp, manure, straw, etc.) to waste streams (greenwaste, water treatment plant sludge, used chip fat, cocoa pods, etc.) and dedicated crops like algae.
However the future pans out, sustainable biomass will have a key role to play as a substitute for fossil energy and fossil feedstocks. Biomass can be used for energy production (gas, heat, electricity), in the chemical industry (feedstock, energy) and for producing renewable transport fuels.
