AF&PA Comments on EPA Issuing Proposed Accounting Framework for Biogenic CO2 Emissions

Thursday, November 20, 2014

Press release from the issuing company

WASHINGTON – American Forest & Paper Association President and CEO Donna Harman today issued the following statement on the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) release of its proposed Accounting Framework for Biogenic CO2 Emissions and policy memorandum.

“We appreciate that EPA has released its biogenic CO2 accounting framework at long last. It appears that EPA has recognized our industry’s sustainable use of manufacturing residuals as carbon neutral. This is consistent with scientific studies showing the use of manufacturing residuals provides greenhouse gas reduction benefits equal to removing 35 million cars from the road when taking into account fossil fuel displacement and avoidance of additional methane emissions from disposal.

“Paper and wood products and the way our industry produces and uses biomass energy are all part of the sustainable carbon cycle.  

“We look forward to completing an in-depth analysis of the documents released today to fully understand the finer details and to participate in upcoming public comment opportunities.”
