AF&PA Applauds Senate Letter Supporting Biomass

American Forest & Paper Association President and CEO Donna Harman has issued the following statement regarding the letter sent today to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Department of Energy and Environmental Protection Agency from 46 of senators. The letter stated senators’ support of “biomass energy as a sustainable, responsible, renewable and economically significant energy source.”

“The carbon neutrality of energy from biomass harvested from sustainably managed forests has been repeatedly recognized around the world. By using biomass manufacturing residuals, the paper and wood products industry is harnessing the energy value of the residuals before the CO2 is lost to the atmosphere through other means.

“AF&PA applauds Senators Collins and Merkley for their leadership and we thank all of the members of Congress who recognize the importance of federal policies that ensure forest biomass energy is an important part of our nation’s energy future.”
