Middlebury Field Trip: 1pm - 5:30pm on Friday, April 29

Willow Plantations and Biomass Gasification Facility

Tour Middlebury College’s combined heat and power biomass gasification system and 10 acre pilot willow site (harvested this past January) with Jack Byrne, Director of the Sustainability Integration Office and Nan Jenks Jay, Dean of Environmental Affairs. The tour will begin at the Franklin Environmental Center with an overview and proceed to the willow site and then the biomass plant. The plant is scheduled for maintenance close to the tour date and may not be up and running but the tour will still be given as most of what there is to see will be the same as when running.
