Humboldt State University biomass study completed
ARCATA, CA, Dec. 5, 2018 (Press Release) -The results are in from a four-year, $5.88-million biomass study led by researchers at Humboldt State University.
The research project, called Waste to Wisdom, generated some interesting conclusions, says co-lead and Schatz Energy Research Center Director Arne Jacobson. One unexpected outcome was that biochar production for use as a soil amendment showed more near-term promise than conversion of forest waste into biomass energy products.
The collaborative project aimed to develop marketable products from the waste materials produced by logging and other forest management activities, focusing primarily on biomass energy products. Biochar was actually the only ...
