College of Forest Resources Research and Technology Showcase: "Biofuels and Bioenergy"
Biofuel and Bioenergy are subjects that are growing as possible solutions to decrease dependence on foreign oil while also diminishing the contribution of carbon to the atmosphere. These two topics are currently being researched in earnest at the College of Forest Resources , and these presentations illustrate what we've learned so far and where more research is still needed. The Showcase includes 7 presentations and a short introduction from Dean B. Bruce Bare.
