The Willow Biomass Program
Driven by the challenges of rural development, energy independence and environmental sustainability, research on willow biomass crops for renewable energy and environmental applications has been ongoing at SUNY-ESF since 1986. ESF has teamed up with more than 20 universities, commercial partners and non-profit organizations throughout the U.S. and Canada to conduct research and facilitate the commercialization of willow biomass crops. Commercial willow production is now happening on nearly 1200 acres of land in New York State and is being supported by the USDA Biomass Crop Assistance Program (BCAP).
