What biomass comes from.

You can find anyone using it.

how it produces energy.

"In a process called photosynthesis, plants capture sunlight and transform it into chemical energy. This energy may then be converted into electricity, heat, or liquid fuels using a number of different energy conversion processes. Two of these processes are as follows: Solid biomass fuels are burned in a boiler. The heat produced turns water to steam which is then used to turn a turbine generator to produce electricity. The second method involves gasifying the biomass and then burning it. The organic resources that are used to produce energy using these processes are collectively called biomass"

Who uses biomass the most.

Countries like finland, USA, and Sweden uses it more then countries like India, china, and Asia.

Biomass is used in mainly used in rural homes, over 90% and 15% in urban homes.
