Wrangell’s biobrick potential

The Wrangell Cooperative Association, in conjunction with Sustainability Incorporated, is looking into the feasibility of another new economic outlet for Wrangell’s wood mills and forests. They want to use wood waste to heat the community’s homes and government buildings by making woodchip boilers and biobricks. KSTK’s Anne Hillman joined forester Bill Wall for a look at the community’s potential.
