Biomass excludes organic materials such as fossil fuels which have been transformed by geological processes into substances such as coal or petroleum. Biomass is used to produce a variety of energy-related products including electricity; liquid, solid and gaseous fuels; heat and chemicals. Biomass energy is derived from five distinct energy sources: garbage, wood, waste, landfill gases, and alcohol fuels. Wood energy is derived both from direct use of harvested wood as a fuel and from wood waste streams. The largest source of energy from wood is pulping liquor or "black liquor," a waste product from processes of the pulp, paper and paperboard industry. Waste energy is the second-largest source of biomass energy. The main contributors of waste energy are municipal solid waste (NASDAQ:MSW), manufacturing waste, and landfill gas. Biomass alcohol fuel, or ethanol, is derived primarily from sugarcane and corn. It can be used directly as a fuel or as an additive to gasoline.

For example, methane gas from landfills and other wastes, such as manure, can be used to generate electricity and heat. Wood waste can be made into pellets for heating or power production. Crops such as sugar, corn or wheat, and soon cellulosic materials such as hay, straw and wood wastes, can be used to make ethanol, a substitute for gasoline; canola crops and oil wastes can be used to make biodiesel.
