Editor’s Notes

In this summer edition of our AHB Newsletter we feature the exciting high school Challenge program at Oregon State University where students focused on bioenergy and which types of feedstocks would be best for different communities.  A landowner’s survey provides perspective on growing poplar-for-biofuels and bioenergy.  In another article hear from Bobby Kirtlan, poplar farmer, about his experience with the project  at the AHB demonstration site in Clarksburg, California.  Our field tour season kicked off with a group of college students eager to learn more about bioenergy at our Stanwood, Washington site.  And discover how University of Washington grad student Erik Budsberg provides valuable Life Cycle Analysis data that helps both industry and educational partners.
