BREAKING: The EPA has declared using biomass from managed forests for energy production is carbon neutral. However, this is a policy determination by Scott Pru...itt's EPA, not a scientific determination and is all about using biomass for electricity and larger installations. AGH believes biomass for residential heating has a much lower carbon impact than using it for electricity and that by going around the scientific process, Pruitt sets the stage for more battles with environmental groups, who we could have had more common ground with.

In 2016 the Alliance for Green Heat held the Pellet Stove Design Challenge to test, study, and assess high-efficiency, low-emission pellet stoves. The goal of ...this study was to assess the repeatability of a single certification test method for pellet stoves and the emission data used for certification purposes. Overall, the repeatability of the test method was favorable with variation in the overall burn rate (kg/h).
