KCMA CERTIFICATIONS: 45+ YEARS OF QUALITY

On June 19th, the Senate Appropriations Committee passed the Interior Appropriations bill, which included language directing U.S. Federal Departments and Agencies to recognize that forest biomass carbon dioxide emissions, from energy producing facilities using biomass as a feedstock, do not require regulation or control.  

This language effectively recognizes the carbon neutrality of forest biomass.  

The U.S. House Appropriations bill that was approved by the Committee earlier this week also contains favorable biomass language, although not as strong as the Senate language.  If the full Senate and House pass their respective bills, a Conference Committee will be named to reconcile the differences and produce final language.
