Quarterly SC Biomass Council Meeting

  • Wednesday, March 30, 2016
  • 1:00 PM
  • State Farmers Market Conference Center, 3483 Charleston Hwy., West Columbia, SC

The first quarterly SC Biomass Council member meeting for 2016 will address the council's involvement with DHEC to ensure biomass is a key component of South Carolina‚Äôs Clean Power Plan (CPP). The CPP is temporarily on hold by the Supreme Court but we feel it is important for the council members to understand how biomass might become an important element of a future CPP.  Biomass, as a clean power option, covers many feed-stocks and technologies; therefore, writing any guidance or rules for biomass related to CO2 emissions is very complicated.  This meeting is intended to cover the key points currently under consideration.


Speakers for this program will include:


Henry Porter - Director, DHEC Division of Emissions

Liz Kress - Committee Chair, Biomass Council; special committee for CPP (Santee Cooper)

Tim Adams - Director of Resource Development, SC Forestry Commission

Jim Frederick - Clemson Professor, Pee Dee Research and Education Center
