Biomass is a biological material produced from living or recently living organisms. Like trees, animals, and garbage:

  1. The total mass of living matter within a given unit of environmental area.
  2. Plant material, vegetation, or agricultural waste used as a fuel or energy source.

Biomass is typically used as a renewable energy source. They do this through burning it or turning it into fuel. It still is damaging to the atmosphere though and to the grounds of where the plant material was collected.

The mass of everything thing that is alive.

Biomass is plant material, manure, or any other organic material that is used as an energy source.
