ABSTRACT The biomass is organic sources that are used for the production of energy through the plants, which realize the photosynthesis absorbing the solar energy to transform it into chemical energy. In this bias, it is deduced that approximately 2.4 billion people use traditional biomass because they do not have access to modern fuels. This article aims to analyze the environmental and economic importance of the production of renewable biomass through a literary analysis of what has already been presented, and speculation of possible justifications and solutions. Under this scenario, each discovery has new technology, commerce, and study. With this in mind, the future is expected to be an in-depth, low-cost technology for everyone to gain access to, as well as the theoretical preparation of what will be used, for a full knowledge of its handling. In sum, it is concluded that the energy produced by the biomass is vast, and can be put into practice with few resources.
