Advanced Hardwood Biofuels Northwest invites you to join AHB researchers for a day out in the field at the project’s Hayden Demonstration Site. The hybrid poplars in Hayden, Idaho will be showing much of  their full re-growth potential as they continue into their second growing season after being initially harvested in 2013.

As a purpose-grown crop for bioenergy, the poplars highlight their potential as a sustainable feedstock for biofuel and biochemical production in the Pacific Northwest. Lunch included!
