A Biomass Energy Task Force Meeting is scheduled for June 4 & 5,
1996 in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania at the Harrisburg Hilton & Towers
(717/233-6000). This day and one-half meeting is being held in 
conjunction with the Electric Power Research Institute's (Evan Hughes)
Biomass Task Force meeting of June 5 (half day) and June 6 (full day). 

The Pennsylvania Bureau of Forestry, EPRI and GPU/Met-Ed/Penelec are 
sponsoring/coordinating the Biomass Energy Task Force Meeting. While 
the meeting will have a Pennsylvania orientation, the overall 
objective transcends the Commonwealth's boundaries. Its objective 
is to explore possible actions and investments that meet current 
utility (and nonutility) strategies and operational/business 
objectives and yet are also on the path to commercial use of 
biomass resources for power generation. We hope to bring together 
50 to 80 individuals from various organizations in the Commonwealth 
and from surrounding states, including: utility and nonutility power 
generators, forest products, agriculture, other industries, university,

government, engineering and research.

Topics include: 

Willows for Power (Salix consortium)
Forest Management, Carbon Sequestration, and Power Generation
Energy Crops: Vision and Prospects
Biomass Power Systems: Technologies, Costs, and Advancements
Waste Fuels Cofiring
Biomass Refineries
Forest, Agriculture, Environment, and Jobs
Fluidized Bed Repowering
Climate Challenge: What Utilities Have Volunteered to Do
Gasification and Other Possible Demonstrations
Toward Success: High Yields of Energy Crops
Discussion: Paths to Biomass Development-Partnering with all
