There is a high variety of biomass processing and end products. The typical and in the context of IWM most common processing is the direct combustion and generation of:
- heat for cocking and heating a house
- power generation (electricity)
Next to these direct outcomes, the biomass processing can lead to side products, such as:
- fertiliser (solid and liquid)
- clean water
- less environmental pollution
Biomass production and consumption has a wide range of positive effects to livelihood and income generation – but tend to be over utilised and such leading in the long term to the opposite!
