This blog was created to address misperceptions about the biomass industry.
We use forest residuals and wood byproducts to create clean, sustainable power. We serve a valuable role in keeping forests healthy and reducing the risk of catastrophic forest fires. We provide a use for materials that would otherwise be discarded in landfills or be open burned. We replace the use of fossil fuels for power generation with a fuel source that is biogenic - in other words, our fuel source is already part of the natural forest carbon cycle and does not introduce new carbon into the atmosphere.
Biomass Makes Sense. Don't take our word for it - the science speaks for itself. And our industry should be supported - by legislators, by recipients of biomass power, and especially by environmentalists.
This blog contains contributions from Biomass Power Association and other industry supporters.
