Enviva Applauds EPA on Clean Power Plan

BETHESDA, Md.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–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.
