Biomass is an organic matter, such as plants, wood and waste, that are used to create Biochar that can be used as a fuel.
One potential source of Biomass is the Juniper tree which is an invasive species. Large parts of the western USA, including Nevada, are overgrown with Juniper trees, making little room for other trees.
A single juniper tree uses up to 40 gallons of water per day, depleting the water table in an increasingly arid area. The tree is a fire hazard with potent greenhouse gas emission.
The Juniper as a Biochar is up to 8,000kcal/kg better than most thermal coal. Use of the Juniper tree as a source for Biomass is a unique green steel opportunity.
