The topic of this paper is to examine the production and power-plant utilization of biomass and waste-derived combustibles with the aim of recovering energy and heat. During biomass production the simultaneous composting of municipal solid waste and sewage sludge can provide the nutrient supply of the energy forests that are planted as biomass raw material. In the controlled decomposition process (fast composting) gas development and emission can be controlled, the amount of waste that is permanently deposited can be minimized and its harm to the environment can be reduced significantly.
