Biomass (typically waste wood, wood chips, dead trees etc.) is used is power generation. By incineration of plant matter to produce electricity and/or heat. These fuels are incinerated to provide the necessary heat to operate steam turbines or gasification plants, which in turn produce electricity to power stand-alone industrial processes, or to be fed back into the national grid.
During the incineration process, ash residue and greenhouse gases are generated within the waste gas, for which emissions to atmosphere must be reduced to below legal air quality standards. In Australia, air quality standards are set by the National Environment Protection Council (NEPC); however monitoring and enforcement is carried out by State/Territory agencies.
