    disturbance processes into climate based models of vegetation distribution Current project Post fire regeneration at the alpine upper treeline ecotone Upper treeline environments have been hypothesized to be some of the most sensitive to changes in climate but research has shown that environmental variation and biotic feedbacks at local scale often override the influence of regional climate on seedling germination survival and recruitment Additionally climate change is likely to affect

  • Bioresource Science and Engineering Interest Group
    fuels chemicals and products from biomass The research can be divided into four main areas Resource assessment and development Briggs Bura Doty McKean A viable biofuels industry will require processes that can use a variety of biomass resources We are investigating the use of residual materials forest agriculture municipal waste and plantation feedstocks such as poplar trees and reeds for biorefineries The environmental impact and product quality associated with use of these feedstocks is a major research focus Chemistry and biology of bioconversion processes Bura Doty Hodgson A fundamental understanding of the chemistry and biology of bioconversion processes is essential to develop superior processes for conversion of biomass to fuels and chemicals Researchers in this area are developing new analysis techniques for evaluating bioconversion processes and new organisms that promise to result in better process yields and superior product quality Biorefinery process development and simulation Hodgson Gustafson Bura McKean We are collaborating with faculty in Chemical Engineering and Mechanical Engineering to develop new processes for converting biomass to fuels and chemicals Features of these processes include their ability to handle mixed feedstocks and their profitability at moderate economies of scale Example projects include development of novel low energy separation processes and life cycle analysis of new biorefinery systems Manufacture of high value co products Allan Hodgson McKean Gustafson One route to economic viable biorefineries is the capability to produce high value co products We are doing research on processes that will produce biofuels such as ethanol along with high value chemicals and bio based products An important thrust of this research is to re envision pulp and paper mills to be forest biorefineries co producing high value paper products chemicals and biofuels The Bioresource Science and Engineering group has excellent facilities These include individual faculty laboratories and a newly renovated
