Biofuel Mass Workshop held

An idea that could redefine what the Western U.P. is known for is gaining ground in the Copper Country.
The Upper Peninsula isn’t known for farming…but one man says there’s a cash crop just waiting to be harvested.
Executive Director of the Western U.P. Planning and Development Region Kim Stoker hosted a Biofuel Workshop at Michigan Tech in Houghton to explain his idea.
The ideal candidate has 20 or more acres of land that hasn’t been used for at least 20 years.
Researchers say there’s more than 50-thousand acres with a few dozen miles of the village of Ontonagon alone that can be utilized for planting.
For many…the idea of planting trees for biofuel could be the answer to an ailing agricultural industry.
An assessor will visit those who signed up last night while Stoker takes this show on the show on the road to try and get more people on board.
