Biomass Energy Forum

The FFIC hosted a community forum focusing on 'Biomass Energy' on Wednesday 20 October 2010 at The Old Woolstore Theatrette (Hobart). The forum was moderated by Greg Barns.

This was the third of several fora that have been planned by the FFIC, the others being 'Smoke Management in the Landscape', and 'Climate Change & Forestry'.

Each forum is designed to stimulate science based discussion on forest-related topics and includes a range of high profile speakers followed by a Q&A session.
