The Biomass Industry

by Mayor Harry Oberg, City of Prescott

On November 15, 2016 a large group of policy makers, ranchers, industry leaders and others met to discuss local biomass extraction and potential uses during the All Hands, All Lands Conference held in Prescott. This event was initiated by the Upper Verde River Watershed Protection Coalition, the Arizona Department of Forestry and Fire Management, and the Chino Winds and Triangle Natural Resource Conservation Districts. Speakers included State Senator Steve Pierce, State Forester Jeff Whitney, Senior Vice President of Arizona Department of Commerce Keith Watkins, local ranchers and land owners, and biomass industry business leaders, some of whom visited from across the country, to discuss uses and production methods for biomass products.  The intent of these discussions is to establish a bio-mass industry in Yavapai County, which may result in a test case applicable to the Southwestern United States.  #Listen Online to more....
