Biomass (wood burning) Plants

“For every megawatt-hour of electricity produced, even the “cleanest” of the American biomass (wood burning) plants pump out nearly 50 percent more carbon dioxide than coal-burning plants.”  “The biomass plants also produce more than twice as much nitrogen oxide, soot, carbon monoxide, and volatile organic matter as coal plants.”  FPI researcher Mary Booth, a former Environmental Working Group scientist, concluded after poring over data associated with 88 air emissions permits, April 2104.
