California Industries Form BioEnergy Producers Association

Formed in January by a group of California's bio-based industries, the mission of the BioEnergy Producers Association is to advance the development and commercialization of sustainable, environmentally preferable industries that produce power, fuels, and chemicals from agricultural, forestry, and urban sources of biomass and plastic wastes. The BioEnergy Producers Association Web site includes a library of documents relating to legislation that affects the state's biomass energy industry.
