Solar, wind, tides, geothermal and hydroelectric are very popular renewable energy sources. However, there is another significant source of energy that is created by our everyday activities across the world known as biomass. Biomass plays a vital role in the production of fuel or electricity. The potential of renewable energy for urban and rural development, liquid fuel replacement and greenhouse gas reduction are current concerns all over the world. Stucley et al.  examined the use of biomass to generate electricity and produce liquid transport fuels in Australia. The main focus of their study was on biomass from forestry, particularly new forestry that may also provide other environmental benefits in Australia’s dry land regions.
