Biomass is essentially the waste matter produced by living and not long dead organisms. It can be in the form of dead wood, fallen leaves, and trimmings from a landscaping task, dung, dead carcasses, and waste parts from animal processing plants that produce food. Biomass excludes organic materials such as fossil fuels which have been transformed by geological processes into substances such as coal or petroleum. If people exercise proper conservation techniques, any form of biomass that is harvested to produce energy can be replaced over a period of time. How much time is required depends on the exact biomass used. For instance, trees would take much longer to replace than corn plants. Fossil fuels, on the other hand exist in finite amounts that will never be replaced.

The cost of producing biomass for use as fuels and energy sources is very cheap compared to the cost of finding and extracting fossil fuels. The cost of finding fuel is eliminated when one deliberately plants certain types of plants to be used in the production of biomass fuels. Extraction is generally no more expensive than harvesting crops for food. In some cases, growing and harvesting crops for biomass fuel use is cheaper than raising food crops.
