The Woody Biomass Utilization Group (About Us) at UC Berkeley is a collaborative outreach effort working to advance the understanding and use of wood and woody biomass.

Part of the University of California system-wide Division of Agriculture and Natural Resource, the group is responsible for providing science-based information, technical assistance, and information about funding opportunities related to biomass utilization interests throughout the state of California.

Currently, the group is actively engaged in:

  • Providing Grants information and assistance.
  • Collaborating with Community Biomass Groups and other partner agencies on the research and policy needs of biomass utilization.
  • Presenting the latest announcements on woody biomass policy and technology developments through our Mailing List and Blog.
  • Evaluating use of biomass material in non-wood based manufacturing processes.
For additional information or inquiries, please Contact Us.
