Enviva applauds the steps the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is taking with the Clean Power Plan and its recognition of the role biomass can play in tackling climate change.

“Converting coal-fired plants to dedicated or co-fired biomass plants is one of the quickest and most cost-effective ways of achieving substantial reductions in emissions of carbon dioxide and other pollutants,” said John K. Keppler, Chairman and CEO of Enviva. “Countries around the world are turning to biomass – increasingly wood pellets – as a renewable, low-carbon source of base load energy and we are pleased that the EPA has opened the door to these coal-to-biomass conversions here in the United States.”

Unlike fossil fuels, the natural resource base for wood pellets is robust, sustainable, and growing. The U.S. Department of Agriculture reports that U.S. forest resources have increased more than 50% over the last sixty years and the Department’s recently published research shows that utilizing wood biomass for energy will support the continued growth of the nation’s forests.
