Valley biomass plants face big air

2012-2-13Two biomass plants intended to help the San Joaquin Valley clean up the air have been tagged with one of the state's largest air-pollution fines in recent history Global Ampersand of Boston was fined more than $800 000 for excess ozone-related emissions and other violations from biomass plants in Madera and Merced counties federal authorities

Biomass Electricity More Polluting Than Coal

2020-6-20Biomass Electricity More Polluting Than Coal By Partnership for Policy Integrity 04 April 14 iomass electricity generation a heavily subsidized form of "green" energy that relies primarily on the burning of wood is more polluting and worse for the climate than coal according to a new analysis of 88 pollution permits for biomass power plants in 25 states

Legal challenge forces N C wood pellet facility to

2020-7-7The world's largest manufacturer of wood pellet fuel for power plants Enviva agreed to install equipment to cut air pollution at a biomass plant under construction in Richmond County North Carolina The agreement was part of a settlement finalized today after three conservation groups challenged the plant's state air permit

Air pollution

2020-7-31Air pollution occurs when harmful or excessive quantities of substances are introduced into Earth's atmosphere Sources of air pollution include gases (such as ammonia carbon monoxide sulfur dioxide nitrous oxides methane and chlorofluorocarbons) particulates (both organic and inorganic) and biological molecules It may cause diseases allergies and even death to humans it may also cause

Air pollution radiative forcing from specific emissions

Therefore biomass burning emissions are the most attractive target for countering global warming via reduction of air pollution Reduction of emissions from the transportation sector in Europe and North America and the domestic biofuel sector (especially in East Asia south Asia and central and southern Africa) would also offer global climate
