50th Anniversary of Earth Day

Wednesday, April 22, 2020 11:25 AM | Elizabeth Kress (Administrator)

The SCBC salutes Earth Day as a celebration of all that the earth provides. Here in South Carolina we have a lot of natural resources to appreciate and preserve.


Through solid and well-informed policy development, South Carolina can be energy independent and preserve its natural resources and beauty. The option to have 100% affordable and abundant clean energy has never been closer to reality than it is today.


The SC Biomass Council serves as a resource for the general public and decision-makers about the environmental and economic benefits of biomass energy. The SCBC works cooperatively with state legislators, biomass producers and users, and other stakeholders to increase awareness and use of biomass energy.


South Carolina currently imports the majority of its energy resources and could greatly benefit from utilizing state-produced feedstocks. The objective of the SCBC is to develop a long term strategy to make biomass energy a feasible alternative to traditional power generation and traditional transportation fuels. Since its formation in 2006, the SCBC has made recommendations to enhance biomass utilization in and around the state.
