Thailand relies heavily on the burning of fossil fuels to supply electricity to its population and industries. Biomass plays an important role in the source of renewable energy by converting sugar cane, rice husks and wood waste to electricity. This prevents the emissions from waste that would otherwise decay in landfill and reduces local environmental problems such as river congestion and ecological damage from illegal dumping.
