Is Biomass Carbon Neutral?

Carbon accounting, especially when forests are involved, is complicated. In short, as long as the forest resource is not depleted, emissions from biomass removals are balanced by forest growth across the landscape. If bioenergy enables more active forest management designed to restore Acadian forests, forest productivity, and therefore carbon uptake, may actually increase. The project will use carbon tracking and traceability, combined with monitoring of the fuel supply region, to show that there are no net GHG emissions on an annual basis.
