  • Énergie de la biomasse

Opération ayant pour objet la cueillette des produits de la biomasse.

"Ramassage de la biomasse" a été proposé d'après "ramassage de la matière végétale" tiré du chapitre consacré à l'exploitation de la biomasse, page 50 et suivantes de "La biomasse - énergie verte" (Code de source : BIENE) publié en 1981.
