Biomass energy is creating jobs in industries like agriculture, transportation, research, and operations. Biomass used to generate power includes crop and forest residue; crops like sugar beets, willow, micanthus, and switchgrass; and farmed, fast-growing trees like poplars. To generate electricity, biomass can be burned in power plants to generate steam, digested by bacteria to create methane gas or transformed into syngas. Environmental benefits of biomass energy depends on how and where the energy is produced, with the burning of whole trees for biomass power potentially more damaging to the climate than coal.
