California Biomass and Waste Combustion Survey

If your organization owns or operates facilities that combust biomass or waste in California, please consider participating in a voluntary survey to help CARB quantify emissions from these sources.


In response to Assembly Bill (AB) 617 (C. Garcia, Chapter 136, Statutes of 2017), CARB established the Community Air Protection Program to reduce exposure in communities most impacted by air pollution. Under this program, CARB is developing the Criteria and Toxic Emissions Reporting Regulation (CTR), which will establish uniform statewide reporting requirements for specified stationary sources.

The survey is part of an effort to establish consistent methodologies for estimating criteria and toxic emissions from biomass and waste combustion processes. Additionally, CARB staff would like to better understand emissions from these sources to support planning purposes and better quantify the impacts of expanded use of biomass and waste combustion in the state.

The survey is voluntary. Facilities are not expected to generate new information. To complete the survey, only supply data that are readily available to you.

How to Participate

CARB has contracted with Eastern Research Group (ERG) to facilitate the survey process. To participate, please visit the survey website below. There you can find a complete list of facilities of interest and request to receive a link to the survey for your facility(ies). We are asking for all survey responses by November 1, 2019.
