  9. Biomass as Energy Source

    Resources, Systems and Applications

    Edited by Erik Dahlquist

    Series: Sustainable Energy Developments

    Global energy use is approximately 140 000 TWh per year. Interestingly, biomass production amounts to approximately 270 000 TWh per year, or roughly twice as much, whereas the official figure of biomass use for energy applications is 10-13% of the global energy use. This shows that biomass is not a...
