Biomass is organic matter that can quickly be replenished unlike coal.
Non-renewable resources like coal, oil, and natural gas are called such because they took millions of years to form and they take millions of years to replenish; whereas biomass is recently-decayed plant or animal matter that can easily be replaced under controlled conditions, such as farming, sustainable foresting and ranching, to name a few methods where we can acquire biomass.
