Summary :

Biomass is a generic term that encompasses all living things (plants, bacteria, animals, fungi) as well as the product of their decomposition, such as humus in the soil, and even their fossilisation (coal, oil, gas, bitumen). The last point is fundamental, because the industrial revolution is based on the exploitation of millions of years old photosynthetic surpluses, the so-called “fossil fuels”. It is the hectares of the forests of the past that drive the great economic machine.
