"'Most companies and governments completely ignore the carbon-dioxide emissions from burning, because they say new trees will grow back and absorb all the carbon again,' said Almuth Ernsting, director of campaigning group Biofuelwatch. 'In reality, it takes minutes to burn a tree and many decades for a new tree to grow back and absorb all the carbon again' ... Companies burning biomass don’t need to buy carbon credits to offset their emissions under the EU Emissions Trading System as the fuel is considered carbon-neutral."
