Résumé
The primary objective of this study was to quantify energy equivalents which exists in the form of standing biomass, and the amount of biomass produced annually from each vegetation type in Ari zona. With such baseline information, it may be possible to determine whether energy derived from biomass is technologically and economically appropriate for use at this time or in the future. Results from this indicate that energy in the form of biomass is potentially available from the vegetation types in Arizona and could provide one alternative for decreasing the demand for fossil fuels. However, the amount of energy generated through use of biomass depends, in part, upon the other uses and products derived from the vegetation types.
