AROWRN Connects 2017 Conference-June 14,15

The Alberta Rural Organic Waste to Resources Network (AROWRN) wants you to know more about the safe and cost-effective conversion of municipal wastewater and biosolids to useful woody biomass resources, through the use of fast-growing poplar and willow. Our group was formed with support from the Alberta Rural Development Network to share information arising from research projects supported by federal and provincial funding since 2006. These poplar and willow projects have demonstrated technologies that are in use around the world, in a context useful for Alberta organizations and based on Alberta’s climate and soil conditions.

The 2017 Conference will take place June 14 and 15 at the Augustana Campus and includes a tour of the Camrose County - Ohaton Lagoon Willow Project and Wood Biomass Boiler.
