Port of Wilma

BioIDeX Clearwater Basin Community Project

A subhead for the Port of Wilma.

Port of Wilma

The Ports team is evaluating both the Port of Lewiston and the Port of Wilma to determine the feasibility of using either site for processing, storing and transporting woody biomass and/or isobutinol and its by-products. The team aims to think about human experience throughout site development. How can we create sense of place and dynamic human integration within an industrial site? Why do modern ports have to be so isolated from the public? Can the Lewiston or Wilma site become a case study for modern public integration and experience within an industrial and “closed” landscape? After initial evaluations, the site which seems to be the most viable as an important transportation link between Idaho and the biofuels markets will be evaluated more in depth in order to produce master plans and comprehensive strategic plans for the port site.
