25x’25 Vision: By 2025, America’s farms, forests and ranches will provide 25 percent of the total energy consumed in the United States, while continuing to produce safe, abundant, and affordable food, feed and fiber.

Webinar: In Field Drying of Woody Biomass: A NCSU project to transform forest economies with a value

You are invited to attend our latest Live Webinar sponsored by: North
Carolina State University-Extension Forestry, Southern Regional Extension
Forestry, Texas A&M Agrilife Extension, and 25x'25.

Title: In Field Drying of Woody Biomass: A NCSU project to
transform forest economies with a value added fuel

What will you learn?
In Field Drying offers the opportunity for woody biomass energy to
increase in supply and decrease in cost. Landowners, loggers, and producers all
stand to benefit from natural drying processes. NCSU has worked to document the
drying schedules of logging residues, the time and energy use in microchipping
green and dried logging residues, and scanning moisture content at the truck
dump. By participating in this webinar you will develop a better understanding
of how in-field drying lowers energy delivery costs, increases the supply of
energy, and decreases the costs associated with material that requires
additional drying. Participants will also hear from Process Sensors Corporation
and the various industries that currently use Near Infrared Radiation
Transmitters and their involvement with this in field drying research project.
Participants will also learn about the current research with time and motion
studies and drying schedules of feasible field stacking techniques.
