- Biomass Supply and Carbon Accounting for Southeastern Forests
Burning wood for electricity is often viewed as a clean, green source of energy that can help address climate change-but the carbon footprint of biomass is not a straightforward calculation. This report by an inter-disciplinary team, commissioned by SELC and National Wildlife Federation, examines the complex relationship between growing forests, harvesting trees and burning wood for electricity. Based on current trends in using wood for large-scale power plants and exporting fuel pellets to Europe, biomass energy in the Southeast is projected to produce higher levels of atmospheric carbon for 35 to 50 years compared to fossil fuels. After that, biomass will result in significantly lower atmospheric levels as regrowing forests absorb carbon from previous combustion.
