List of websites related to renewable raw materials


Renewable raw materials (also known as biomass) are organic materials from vegetable or animal sources which can be used in part or as a whole as raw materials for industry or as energy carriers.  Unlike fossil raw materials they are renewed annually or in easily comprehensible periods of time (Zentrales Agrar-Rhostoff-Marketing- und Entwicklungs-Netzwerk e.V.)
