    I walk to work nearly every day all year round. This time of year the cardinals, robins, and chickadees are singing out from the maples, oaks, locust, and Norway spruce trees.

    A sustainable community uses all of its' resources efficiently. For example, MSU's Methane digester used all of the waste products from the dining halls efficiently. It used the bio-fuel produced to power building on campus, and it used the digesters to enrich soil on agricultural land. It is sustainable that all the products were used and...

    Pennsylvania has extensive biomass resources available for energy production from existing forest management activities, manufacturing byproducts and post-consumer materials. There is a high potential for carbon neutral energy while enhancing long-Term health and viability of our forests.  To research this topic more, the Pennsylvania Fuels...
