Tad Mason: Energy, job potential in forest residues
Producing energy from coal and other fossil fuels causes an increase in greenhouse gas emissions while energy produced from biomass sources does not. Yet less than 2 percent of California’s electricity comes from biomass-fired power-generation facilities. California must overcome two significant obstacles to derive more energy from in-state, renewable sources. The first is uncertainty surrounding the carbon benefits that biomass power-generation offers. This uncertainty has been clouded by recent efforts to exclude certain biomass sources from emerging carbon markets and impede biomass infrastructure expansion. The development ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Integrated Solid Waste Management, CDFS-106-05
