Manufacturers to EPA's Science Advisory Board: Crucial Framework be Clear, Predictable

Mar 25, 2015

WASHINGTON – American Forest & Paper Association (AF&PA) President and CEO Donna Harman and American Wood Council President and CEO Robert Glowinski issued the following statements on the U.S. Environment Protection Agency's (EPA) Science Advisory Board (SAB) Biogenic Carbon Panel hearing, during which members heard testimony on the agency's revised draft Framework for Assessing Biogenic Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Emissions from Stationary Sources.

A link to the associations' full joint testimony is available​ here.

Donna Harman, President and CEO, AF&PA:
"EPA has noted that energy from many biomass manufacturing residuals is carbon neutral. As most of the renewable energy paper manufacturers use comes from these residuals, it's important to us that the agency fully recognize their benefits, which include fossil fuel displacement and avoidance of additional greenhouse gases that would occur from alternative disposal."

Robert Glowinski, President and CEO, AWC:
"In order for the framework to work as intended, it must be based on robust data and sound science that can be consistently applied across greenhouse gas policies and regulations. It's also crucial the framework be easy to implement, workable in practice, predictable and transparent."
