Biomass is any organic matter available on a renewable basis, such as agricultural crops and waste, wood and wood wastes, animal wastes, municipal wastes, and aquatic plants.
Whitman, a Reno businesswoman, said industrial hemp was used in World Wars I and II by the military for such things as sealant on ships and in uniforms, adding that Nevada “has a responsibility to provide us with clean renewal energy and has the duty to promote any research that will help us to this goal."
Greg Bortolin, a spokesman for the Desert Research Insitutte, said the institute was studying possible energy sources, and hemp “could well be another biomass."
