LEESBURG, VA -- The Composite Panel Association (CPA) said it has submitted comments in response to the proposed Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement (PEIS) for the Biomass Crop Assistance Program (BCAP), established under Title IX Section 9001 of the 2008 Farm Bill. The deadline for filing comments is Aug. 6, 5:00 p.m. EST

In the filing, CPA reiterates its support for an approach that ensures the program meets its stated purpose to increase America’s usable fiber supply and not divert the current supply from established and productive uses. It also asks that the Regulations and Eligible Materials List for BCAP subsidies fully exclude the wood mill by-product that composite panel manufacturers use.
