Hamilton MT hosting bio-fuel symposium

For the first time in the history of the Bitterroot Valley, a symposium discussing the bio-fuel industry will take place this Saturday.

Sponsored by the Big Sky Coalition in conjunction with the Bitterroot National Forests and Ravalli County Commissioners, the day-long event will host a variety of speakers and topics related to energy sources, development, air quality and bio-energy opportunities.

The symposium is slated to discuss and explore the potential transformation of wood wastes into ethanol and methanol and burning them, in hopes of creating steam to generate electricity and heat.
