There is a wide range of biomass potentially suitable for energy use. However most types of conversion equipment works effectively with a very few types and forms of biomass fuel. Biomass could reach 60% of our total global renewable energy use by 2030!
Although organic wastes, residues and co-products from a range of processes and industries can potentially be used as biomass feedstock, the two groups primarily responsible for producing biomass fuels are forest industries and agriculture including algae.
