Biomass is a renewable energy source. It comes from waste products like garbage and cow manure. It can even some from corn. http://schools.clipart.com/index
In order to collect biomass energy, trucks will collect the waste and bring it to a plant. At the plant the waste is burned and used to boil water. The steam from the boiling water is used to turn the turbines of a generator.
Once the generator is turning, it creates a current. This current is then brought to the community through wires and cables.
Biomass Energy isn’t perfect. It can actually contribute to global warming if not used properly. It also requires trucks to gather the garbage. However, a new fuel source that is made from corn, ethanol, could help that.
