Biomass Summit - Prineville, OR
Biomass includes any woody material we strategically take off the land as a by-product of forest restoration. Biomass can be used to produce a full range of products including energy, lumber, composites, paper and pulp, furniture, housing components, round wood, ethanol and other liquids, chemicals, biochar, and energy feedstocks.
What Topics will be Covered?
