Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC)

European Commission - Eurostat
Covers organic, non-fossil material of biological origin which may be used as fuel for heat production or electricity generation. Due to its heterogeneous nature, it is measured on the basis of the heat content (net calorific value) of biomass used as fuel.

International Energy Agency (IEA)
Covers organic, non-fossil material of biological origin which may be used as fuel for heat production or electricity generation.
Due to its heterogeneous nature, it is measured on the basis of the heat content (net calorific value) of biomass used as fuel.

Organisation of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC)
Other solid fuels, instead of solid biomass, includes peat, wood, wood waste, municipal waste, vegetal waste, industrial waste, and sulphite lies (“black liquor”, a residual from the paper industry).

United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE)
Covers organic, non-fossil material of biological origin which may be used as fuel for heat production or electricity generation.
Due to its heterogeneous nature, it is measured on the basis of the heat content (net calorific value) of biomass used as fuel.
