A workgroup of representatives from state government, forest industries, renewable energy development and the environmental community will meet in Salem on May 26 to discuss the role of Oregon’s forests in providing energy production from wood.
The Forest Biomass Work Group will meet on Thursday May 26 at 10:00 a.m. in the Administration Building (Tillamook meeting room) of the Oregon Department of Forestry complex, 2600 State Street in Salem.
The tentative agenda for the meeting includes reports from Work Group teams regarding carbon neutrality of forest biomass, potential incentives for developing forest biomass energy facilities and discussion about the Work Group’s charter for future direction on projects. Issue updates from state and federal agencies serving on the Work Group are scheduled, as is an overview of wood boiler rulemaking processes at the state and federal level.
Members of the public are invited to participate in the meeting. The meeting location is accessible to persons with disabilities.
