California Biomass Workshop
January 31, 2024 @ 8:00 am - 6:00 pm
Solving the state’s wood waste challenge to reduce wildfire, support rural economies and achieve carbon neutrality by 2045
California is in the grip of a wood waste crisis – one that is expected to become significantly worse as the state ramps up forest treatments in accordance with the Governor’s target to treat one million acres per year by 2025. IBank estimates that over 80% of these residues are left to degrade in place, masticated, or piled and burned, resulting in significant carbon and air pollution as well as an ongoing wildfire threat to communities. The goal of this workshop is to bring together stakeholders from around the state to address this vital resource management challenge in a manner that can drive rural and tribal economic development, non-combustion technology innovation and greenhouse gas emissions reductions.
