Despite its early and ongoing support for biomass energy, Blue Lake Rancheria, a federally recognized Native American Tribe based in Humboldt County, California (a 2015-16 White House Climate Action Champion) has intervened in a Clean Air Act enforcement action by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Justice against Blue Lake Power, a 12-megawatt biomass power facility located less than ½ mile from the Tribe.

On November 17, The Biomass Monitor spoke with Jana Ganion, Energy Director for Blue Lake Rancheria, who shared her concerns about the health impacts from particulate matter and other air pollution emissions from Blue Lake Power and biomass energy in general.

The Biomass Monitor conference calls are held the 3rd Thursday of every month. To get announcements go to thebiomassmonitor.org and subscribe to our free, monthly online journal investigating the whole story on bioenergy, biomass, and biofuels.
