EPA Science Advisory Board Issues Report on Assessing Biogenic CO2 Emissions

On August 29, an EPA Scientific Advisory Board (SAB) released a draft review of a 2014 agency report evaluating a “Framework for Assessing Biogenic CO2 Emissions from Stationary Sources.”  The SAB’s draft report is inconsistent with EPA’s current carbon neutrality policy in that it still “offers overarching suggestions for moving forward with a framework for assessing the biogenic assessment factors (BAF) of biogenic feedstocks,” which can then be used to determine net carbon emissions by taking into account alternatives to the use of biomass as fuel.  Despite these significant differences, it seems likely that near-term EPA regulatory and policy actions will be informed in part by three documents: the SAB report, the current EPA policy on carbon neutrality and the appropriations legislative language on the carbon neutrality of biomass.  See SAB Report.  More Info: Jackson Morrill
