Most commonly, biomass refers to plant mattergrown for use as biofuel, but it also includes plant or animal matter used for production of fibres, chemicals or heat. Biomass may also include biodegradable wastes that can be burnt as fuel. It excludes organic material which has been transformed bygeological processes intosubstances such as coal or petroleum."
