Researchers from five universities, funded by a $10 million @USDA_NIFA grant, are studying #biomass production, utilization, and supply chain logistics to advance the #sustainable biomass industry:

"The most important climate change mitigation measure is the transformation of energy, industry and transport systems so that fossil carbon remains in the ground. Bioenergy plays a strategic role in supporting this transformation.": via @IEABioenergy

Burning #biomass emits carbon that's part of the biosphere-atmosphere carbon exchange. Fossilfuel emissions are a carbon flow from geological stores 2 atmosphere. Atmospheric GHG concentrations from fossil fuels 2 biomass can't be determined comparing CO2 emissions at combustion

Wildfires are increasing in strength and frequency across the western U.S. due to #climatechange. Sustainable #biomass energy can utilize dead and burned trees to reduce #wildfire fuel and limit carbon dioxide emissions: via @YaleE360

"Targeted thinning of overgrown forests and removal of hazardous fuels — such as dead trees and dense underbrush" should be enacted to restore the health of forests.

Sustainable #biomass energy plays an important role in #climatechange mitigation and adaptation.

The West's wildfires are the unprecedented but predictable result of the climate crisis. American Forests is calling for comprehensive climate policy & bold measures to restore resilient forests. Read our statement here: #Forests4Climate
