Congress must act on bioenergy

At the risk of bragging, there is no better example of the sustainable potential of biomass energy than our industries themselves.  The pulp, paper, packaging, tissue and wood products sectors use biomass for roughly two-thirds of our power, and so we are able to dramatically reduce our fossil fuel purchases. And we do it with leftovers from the manufacturing process—along with wood lost due to insects, disease and fire, that would otherwise decompose naturally emitting the carbon back into the atmosphere.
