Biomass energy for crops drying

Drying Biomass for Energy Biomass is a highly useful material consisting of renewable resources, such as plants. It has the abi lity to generate heat and electricity in a manner which is less harmful to the environment. Biomass Components Biomass is carbon-based and composed of a mixture of organic molecules that contain hydrogen
