Produced by Pam White and hosted by BIO5 Institute member Dr. Vicki Chandler, “WaveLengths: Sustainability,” explores scientific innovations in the areas of biofuel production, local urban agriculture, solar energy and responsible waste management… approaches to help meet present food and energy needs without compromising the well being of future generations.


Environmental innovations highlighted in “WaveLengths: Sustainability” include: two Tucson growers with a budding business on the banks of the Rillito River; a large facility in Tucson that produces enough ethanol to supply the entire state and parts of Southern California; a look at a team of researchers hoping to make biodiesel even more sustainable; one researcher finding the best way to harness solar energy, which is both a personal and professional quest; and a look at Pima County recycling statistics and the processes which can make a difference.
