    There are a variety of methods for handling materials that will decay, rot, ignite and /or ferment. These methods often refer to their feed stock by different names but basically organic materials are termed biomass when the processing is oriented toward heat and steam production by reducing a feedstock to manageable size for automated feed into a furnace.
