July 17, 2014 - July 19, 2014
At the Pike Place Market in Seattle
July 17-19, 2014
The 10th Biennial Short Rotation Woody Crop Conference offers an opportunity to communicate practical knowledge on how short rotation woody crop (SRWC) production systems are being used and continually improved to provide economically sustainable feedstocks for the production of bioenergy, bioproducts, and solid and fiber products.
The SRWC Conference is co-hosted by the Advanced Hardwood Biofuels Northwest (AHB) Extension Team and the Short Rotation Woody Crop Operations Working Group. Researchers working on the AHB project will be presenting their work on short-rotation hybrid poplars as a feedstock for renewable biofuels.
