Biomass from Animal Waste
The potential biomass from animal waste includes primarily waste from intensive livestock operations, from poultry farms, pig farms, cattle farms and slaughterhouses. In Greece , raising of sheep, lambs and goats is done extensively, over a large area of pasture, so waste is scattered and cannot be collected to be used for energy.
Forest biomass which is used or can be used for energy purposes consists of firewood, forestry residues (from thinning and logging), material cleared from forests to protect them from forest fires, as well as byproducts from wood industries.
