New Fiber Optic Loop

The completed fiber optic network is the final segment of an 87-mile route from Grants Pass, Ore. to Crescent City, Calif. consisting of a 720GB circuit with capacity to service thousands of people across multiple cities. It brings high-speed Internet, phone and high definition (HD) television service to numerous households and businesses, makes advanced telemedicine possible and creates opportunities for businesses such as call centers with heavy data applications. It also completes a redundant, fiber optic loop connecting southern Oregon and northern California, establishing a more reliable connection.

Three Dimensional Timberlands, LLC.

Profile: Three Dimensional Timberlands LLC – Sustainable Biomass Pyrolysis Using Forestry Waste:  A new start-up biomass pyrolysis company is building its first pilot plant on the forested coast of southwest Oregon in the United States. Three Dimensional Timberlands (3DT) is purchasing a former timber mill site where they will construct a three-ton-per-hour fast pyrolysis unit. Access to appropriate feedstocks is one reason for the Oregon location. The fast pyrolysis used by 3DT produces significant quantities of biochar along with bio-oil. The plant should be up and running in nine months, and after proving the feasibility of the technology in operational mode, the group has immediate plans for two additional plants in Oregon with long term plans for expansion both within the US and globally.
