Tell the EPA Biomass Pollutes Our Air

The EPA is still taking comments on biomass and greenhouse gas emissions until May 5th. But by putting off regulation of biomass carbon, the EPA is allowing new facilities that will emit 350 million tons of unregulated CO2 a year.

Tell the EPA that if they’re going to study biomass carbon emissions, they need to regulate the biomass industry in the meantime. It’s only common sense.
Comments are due Thursday, May 5, 2011.

Biomass is biological material derived from living , or recently living organisms. Biomass heating systems generate heat from biomass. Biomass boilers burn bark, sander dust and other wood-related scrap not usable in product production. Good information. Thanks a lot.

Biomass is one of the best and cheap renewable sources of energy. There is really a need of changing our mind setups. Thanks for sharing.
