A $2.7 MILLION GRANT FOR FOREST BIOMASS RESEARCH awarded by the federal agriculture and energy departments will fund a U-led multistate study of whether forest-based biofuels are viable and sustainable. The study, led by assistant professor Anthony D'Amato, will involve analyzing the potential ecological and economic costs and benefits of harvesting woody biomass from forestland in the lake states of Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan.
