Western Governors Push for Federal Biomass Policy | AREVA North America: Next Energy Blog


In a letter yesterday, the Western Governors’ Association, representing the governors of 19 states and three US-flag Pacific islands, called on the Obama Administration to “develop a clear and unambiguous federal biomass policy,” saying that “many of the issues presented remain unresolved, consequently impeding our efforts to protect our citizens and forests, promote renewable energy and reduce America’s dependence on foreign oil.”  Read the press release. 
By supporting the collection of wood waste biomass to fuel biopower facilities, the Administration would stimulate regional sustainable forestry economies and provide leadership in developing renewable power resources. Economic stimulus and energy policy—now, where have we heard those concepts recently?
Learn more about the design and development of a modern biomass power facility at our ADAGE Mason County project.
