Biomass is a common name for dead organic material, mostly from vegetable origin which a person can use for generating energy, except fossil matters such as oil and coal. We include wood as the most widely used source for generating energy, straw, fast-growing crops (i.e. sugar cane and rapeseed), organic waste (livestock waste, municipal waste, sewage water). Biomass can be used directly for burning where thermal and/or electric energy is created, or we can transform it into liquid and gas hydrocarbons with various technological processes. They can be used as fuel (so-called biogas and biodiesel).

Beside researching processes of generating thermal and electric energy, and bio-fuels from biomass, we also perform research on biomass usage in production processes of special extracts from woodchips, and development of new technologies for biomass use with other renewable sources.
