A December 7 webinar – the final in a series of three for fall 2015 – will present in-depth information on the $5.88 million Waste to Wisdom project and its efforts to better utilize forest residues for the production of bioenergy and bio-based products. Forest residues, including small-diameter trees, tops, and limbs, produced during thinning and timber harvest operations, have long been underutilized and treated as waste materials because of their high collection and transportation costs and low market value.

Waste to Wisdom is funded by a grant from the U.S. Department of Energy under the Biomass Research and Development Initiative program, Award Number DE-EE0006297, and is led by Humboldt State University with support from 15 regional partners.

While also offering an overview of Waste to Wisdom, the webinar will focus on the Sustainability Analysis portion of the project and the following topics regarding the utilization of forest residues: economic analysis – feasibility and impacts, lifecycle analysis, and the evaluation of biochar’s impacts on forest soils.

The webinar will be held Monday, December 7 at 11:00am Central. Seats are limited. See the webinar page for more information and a link to register.
