Editor’s Notes

Research, education, and outreach efforts continue to keep Advanced Hardwood Biofuels Northwest’s partners busy this fall and early winter. This issue of AHB’s E-Newsletter covers bioenergy education workshops and programs that started this fall and research on fighting poplar disease. Oregon State University is running workshops for K12 teachers for the second straight year to bring bioenergy into the classroom. At Walla Walla community college, the bioenergy certificate and associate degree programs have started. The Hardwood Biofuels Wednesday Webinar series continues on January 8th, with the next webinar: Will Poplar Bioenergy Farms Maintain Soil and Water Quality? The AHB Extension Team is busy planning two 2014 conferences in Seattle on Northwest woody biofuels and short-rotation woody crops. Best wishes for the holiday season and the New Year from the entire AHB team.
