COMMENT OF THE DAY: tornado whips Simpson Kraft Tacoma

By Volcano Staff on April 15, 2011


Today's comment of the day comes from tornado in response to our Green Guide story on The Evergreen State College's foray into biomass gasification by Brett Chihon.

tornado writes,

Good article. I'd like to see a follow-up on the Simpson Kraft biomass plant at their paper mill. Is it really carbon neutral? How does it impact our already marginal air quality? Does it make the pulp mill's aroma better, worse, or no effect? Does the surplus energy generated help reduce coal and gas emissions in the Northwest and allow for more salmon friendly dam operations, or is it all sent to California for renewable energy credits?
