Video: Cultivating Hybrid Poplars for Biofuel Production

Advanced Hardwood Biofuels Northwest (AHB), a consortium of Pacific Northwest university and industry partners led by the School of Environmental and Forest Sciences, has put together a series of short videos to help explain current research into the conversion of hybrid poplars into biofuels and other bioproducts. From an AHB project overview to more granular explorations of specific parts of the conversion process, the videos provide a great window into some of the exciting research happening right here at SEFS and at our partner institutions.

The segment below, for instance, covers the cultivation of hybrid poplars for biofuel production, including site selection, site preparation, planting techniques, post-planting management practices and harvesting.

Take a look at the rest of the videos, too, and stay plugged into everything happening with AHB!
