Biofuels: From Wood To Wing?

The northwest United States has an abundance of forest residuals – underbrush and slash– left over from harvesting and forest restoration treatments, as well as mill and urban wood waste. All of these feedstocks are forms of woody biomass. This abundance of woody biomass creates considerable potential for wood-based bioenergy development in the region, particularly […]

Bio-Based Jet Fuel: WSU Research Takes Off

Today’s synergy is tomorrow’s energy. That is one principle underlying Washington State University’s collaborative, multidisciplinary work in biofuels – work that could pave the way toward sustainable, biologically based jet fuel for the aerospace industry in the Evergreen State and around the world. WSU is forging a course to that future through its leadership of […]

Montana Tribes Part Of Renewable Energy Work

Leftover tree parts from logging operations usually end up as piles of useless ash, but academic researchers and tribal forestry officials hope that recent projects will result in less waste and a possible energy market for local forest products. Alaska Airlines hopes to fly a jet with biofuels produced by processing trees from the Flathead […]

Biofuels For Road Transportation Will Reach Nearly $338 Billion By 2022

Over the next eight years, biofuels are expected to become an important part of the fuel mix for road transportation, accounting for 7.5 percent of liquid fuels consumed in the sector by 2022. Many governments, corporations, and individuals see biofuels as a promising solution to solving the energy security, environmental, and economic challenges associated with […]

Biojet Project Takes Off In Missoula

Re-energize Montana’s wood products industry while “greening” America’s airline industry. Reduce dependence on foreign oil while improving the health of forests. On paper, the potential benefits of turning forest wood waste into jet fuel look almost too good to be true. But this isn’t just pie-in-the-sky science fiction. It could soon become pine-in-the-sky reality. “Can […]
