Editor’s Notes

Bioenergy conversations fuel great discussions within the AHB team!  In this edition of the newsletter learn about innovative, hands-on training as students train for future jobs in the bioproducts industry.  Also, read about an online bioenergy class aimed at attracting learners when it’s most convenient for them to access information.

Harvesting green energy presents its own set of logistics.  Find out how the machinery is adapting to the structure of the poplars.

The 2015 National Energy Extension Summit in Seattle showcased innovative ideas and dynamic speakers.  Conference highlights are featured in this edition.  Meet UC Davis grad student Roger Li and get to know the work he’s doing with renewable energy systems.

Celebrate Earth Day this Wednesday, April 22 with our Biofuels and Wildlife webinar.  Brian Moser of Rocky Mountain Wildlife Institute and Robert Fletcher from the University of Florida will be focusing on impacts to biodiversity, ecological effects, and species responses to biomass production. Register today!

Finally, take a look at our new home page for the AHB website.  We’ve made it easier for policy makers, environmental professionals, educators, and the public to access information and resources.  http://hardwoodbiofuels.org/
