Biomass in various forms has long been the primary energy source and only in recent history of humankind other sources like fossil fuels (also derived from old biomass) have furnished the bulk of energy supply. Modern biomass energy systems are now receiving worldwide attention within the overall trend to sustainable development, security of energy supply, environmental quality and climate stabilization. In that respect, traditional biomass is supplemented by new biomass, based on advances in science and technology and giving rise to the proportion of renewable sources in the overall energy mix.
