How do hybrid poplar trees interact with air pollution?
Presenter: Dr. Todd Rosenstiel
Unlike traditional agriculture crops, many emerging bioenergy crops emit significant quantities of volatile organic compounds (VOCs). These VOCs, including isoprene, can react with compounds in the atmosphere and lead to the production of ozone in the troposphere.
Presenters: Dr. Andrew Rodstrom and Dr. Aurea Nardelli
This webinar features information about the different environmental risk mitigation strategies employed by GreenWood Resources and the Roundtable on Sustainable Biomaterials certification program is discussed.
Assessing the economic and environmental impacts of sustainably produced poplar-based biofuels
Presenter: Dr. Rick Gustafson
Producing fuels from poplar wood grown on bioenergy farms must be economically viable and environmentally sound to be sustainable. This webinar presents two research programs designed to assess the economic and environmental sustainability of poplar-based biofuel production.
