There were one and a half days of presentations and discussion and a site visit on the afternoon of 6 November to the Energex wood pellet plant in Mifflintown, PA. Terra Green Energy LLC was the generous provider of the site visit to their facility and PSIEE (Penn State Institutes of Energy and the Environment) and the EMS Energy Institute were the generous sponsors of the workshop. 

"The recent IEA CCC Workshop/Conference at Penn State was one of the best biomass-based energy conferences that I have attended.  The content was impressive, the presenters credible and the discussions most informative." Michael J.
