Bioregional Planning Clearwater Basin Biomass Student Presentations

Monday, April 30 2012 at 3:00 PM to 5:00 PM

Location: 4th Floor - UI Commons Crest Room

U-Idaho Bioregional Planning & Community Design and the Landscape Architecture Programs, in partnership with WSU Bio-IDeX Studio, will present on the Clearwater Basin bioregion and the woody biomass supply chain on Monday, April 30, 2012, in the Commons Crest Room from 3 - 5 p.m.

These presentations and poster sessions were funded by a grant from USDA AFRI-NIFA; a 5-year $40 million dollar project that began in Spring 2010. The Clearwater Basin was selected as the first biomass pilot community. WSU is the lead institution and U-Idaho is partnering on education for K-12 and technology transfer to industry. With oil refining and distribution assets, a high need for military and commercial aviation fuels, and abundant woody biomass currently at scale, our region is well positioned to deliver bio-based aviation fuels and chemicals within 5-years.
