  • Collaboration with Pakistan University Possible on Biomass Energy

Cooperative Extension Energy Faculty, Art Nash, recently traveled to Islamabad, Pakistan to attend the International Conference on Sustainable Energy Technologies and meet with Pakistani biomass professors on a plan to utilize the UAF Experiment Farm laboratory with ongoing gasification training/testing for remote areas.

 While presenting on 20-30kw biomass electrical generation, Nash introduced a short movie featuring ACEP Biomass Coordinator, Amanda Byrd, about biomass in Alaska.

 The conference was also attended by UAF Geological Engineering Professor, Debu Misra, from the College of Engineering and Mines.

 Nash is confident that collaboration opportunities will develop as the relationship between UAF and National University of Science and Technology in Islamabad (NUST) is solidified.
