A biogenic substance is a substance produced by life processes. It may be either constituents, or secretions, of plants or animals. A more specific name for these substances is biomolecules.

Examples

  • Coal and oil are possible examples of constituents which may have undergone changes over geologic time periods.
  • Chalk and limestone are examples of secretions (marine animal shells) which are of geologic age.
  • grass and wood are biogenic constituents of contemporary origin.
  • Pearls, silk and ambergris are examples of secretions of contemporary origin.
  • Carbon, from using biogenic and non-biogenic fuels, has implications for estimating the efficiency and environmental benefits of waste-to-energy incineration processes.
