Making bioenergy from biomass

How do we convert biomass into energy? All forms of energy come from the sun. Biomass is plant material that contains that same stored chemical energy. We currently rely heavily on fossil fuels, formed from living things that died and were converted into coal, natural gas or oil over millions of years. Bio-renewable energy comes from renewable sources and provides alternatives to fossil fuels. This course describes various methods that are being used to convert agricultural biomass into usable energy.
