Abstract

Biomass conversion to energy is a relatively new topic in Utah. The Utah Biomass Resources Group (UBRG) is interested in supporting the use of Utah’s woody biomass for energy production. The UBRG’s mission is to promote healthy forests and woody products in Utah. The UBRG is engaged with other partners in Utah and the surrounding region to investigate how to utilize woody biomass for energy production. The group includes participation from stewards of federal land, state land and private individuals as well. The main woody biomass focus right now is on a species of pinyon pine and juniper that is considered to be either an invasive or aggressive species. Local, federal and state agencies are very interested in managing these species and in restoring effected habitat.
