Editor’s Notes

Happy June! It’s a great month for bioenergy. In this edition of AHB News, learn from speakers at our Poplar/Willow Forum how bringing over 50 people from the U.S. and Ireland could impact the way biomass is grown and utilized in the coming years.

Read how 3rd grade students in Oregon are discovering poplar genetics and how bioenergy may be playing a role in their futures.

Renewables? Alternative? Carbon cycles? Educating young students on their role in energy use and research is the focus of trainings in Washington State.

Meet graduate student Chang Dou and learn about how he plans to help shape an emerging bioenergy economy.

You can also hear from AHB team members about why they care so much about the field of bioenergy.

Finally, I have recently left the AHB project and a new editor will be taking over the next edition.

Thank you for all of the great stories!
