Fueling Environmental Sustainability

The push for biofuels and bioproducts started as way to reduce our dependence on petroleum and the impacts of climate change. The AHB research project specifically addresses producing biofuels and bio-based chemicals from hardwoods in a sustainable manner.

Here we provide research-based information from AHB on the impacts on biodiversity, soil, and water, as well as the carbon cycle. A complete life cycle assessment (LCA) estimates the greenhouse savings compared to products from petroleum.

A Cradle to Grave Assessment of Bio-Jet Fuels Production

This video highlights how researchers use a Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) as a "cradle to grave" appraisal tool to understand the environmental impacts of producing poplar feedstock, converting it into bio-jet fuel, and distributing and using the fuel.
