Free Biomass Energy And Forest Management Workshop May 17 In Elk County

The PA Biomass Energy Association is hosting a Biomass Energy and Forestry Management Workshop at the Kane Experimental Forest in Wilcox, Elk County.
This workshop is designed for those interested in learning about the connections between sustainable forest management practices and economically viable uses of biomass to heat and power homes and businesses, in particular, Kane High School. The tour will start where it all begins, in the forest.
Attendees will tour and observe experimental forest plots while professional foresters from government and industry provide insight and information on managing forests for sustainability and highlighting opportunities for maximizing the energy benefits of biomass.  
After visiting the forest, attendees will visit the Kane High School Biomass Heating 15 minutes away.  A representative from Allegheny National Forest will discuss fuel supply for the biomass heating project, and John Rook, Facilities Manager for the school district, will provide an overview and tour of how they use biomass for renewable heating and its benefits to the school over oil or gas.
The facilitators for the workshop will be Tom Wilson, Wilson Engineering Services and Geoff Bristow from the Department of Environmental Protection.
