The current reform to forest biomass policy supported by the Council will lead to ecosystem and climate collapse
Representatives of wood-using industries are showing real fear about their ability to survive, and deep frustration that bioenergy is gobbling up resources and getting subsidised to do so.
Climate-critical land carbon sink is rapidly declining, while harvesting and burning wood for biomass energy continues to grow
NGOs Call on EU Leaders to Strengthen Provisions in Trilogue
A single 50 MW biomass electricity plant burns as much wood per year as 180,000 homes – while raking in millions in subsidies that could be supporting truly clean energy
What if we told you that the EU is paying people to burn wood that emits more CO2 than these catastrophic fires?
EU policymakers and investors take note: biomass company claims about carbon neutrality don’t survive scrutiny.
The gap between what the science shows is needed to save forests and the climate, and what is on the table, is still too wide.
