EPA Delays GHG Permitting for Biomass-powered Industries

Posted 3:17 PM by

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has announced that it will defer greenhouse gas (GHG) permitting requirements for carbon dioxide emissions resulting from biomass-powered sources. Manufacturers who utilize biomass as a fuel source for industrial production will receive some relief from the EPA's decision. 

The EPA's announcment states "CO2 emissions from biomass-fired and other biogenic sources are generated during the combustion or decomposition of biologically based material. Sources covered by this decision would include facilities that emit CO2 as a result of burning forest or agricultural products for energy, wastewater treatment and livestock management facilities, landfills and fermentation processes for ethanol production." 

For more information, read the EPA announcement.
