ABSTRACT
The article offers information on biomass carbon neutrality. The term is usually used to describe the efforts of companies to become carbon neutral by completely offsetting their greenhouse gas emissions. It cites the difference between biomass carbon and fossil fuel carbon. It emphasizes the need for the enforcement of additional policies and practices to ensure the wise use of forest resources.
