Infosheets for Extension Professionals
We engage policy makers through a series of short, to-the-point briefs highlighting important accomplishments and research from all the AHB Teams.
The policymaker briefs are available here.
AHB’s infosheets are designed to give community members and other Extension professionals digestible information about laying the foundation for a poplar-based bioeconomy in the PNW.
Drop-In biofuels are liquid transportation fuels made from plant material. These fuels are chemically identical to petroleum-derived gasoline, diesel, and jet fuel. Drop-in biofuels could be used in the same engines and be stored in the same fuel supply infrastructure as fossil fuels.
Ethanol and biodiesel are renewable alternatives to petroleum that can be blended into transportation fuels. Traditional gasoline and diesel engines can run on lower-level blends, and Flex Fuel Vehicles can use 85% ethanol. In the Pacific Northwest, blends with over 10% ethanol (E10) and over 5% biodiesel (B5) are offered at select stations, primarily along the I-5 corridor.
