The article focuses on the study entitled "Assessment of Biomass Energy Potential for New Jersey" conducted by New Jersey's Agricultural Experiment Station. The study aims to evaluate the features and quantity of the state's biomass resources and to evaluate the technologies that can be used to create biopower or biofuels. Among the findings of the study include that New Jersey produces an estimated of 8.2 million dry tons of biomass annually, the biomass is produced directly by New Jersey's population through their solid waste and that agriculture and forestry management of New Jersey make up mostly of the remaining biomass produced.
