Advanced Hardwood Biofuels Northwest (AHB)

Advanced Hardwood Biofuels Northwest (AHB), led by the University of Washington is working to prepare the Pacific Northwest for a biofuels industry using purpose-grown hardwoods as feedstocks for gasoline and aviation fuels and industrial chemicals.

AHB is a consortium of six universities and two industry partners that are working together to establish a sustainable biofuels industry by researching and developing ways to grow and convert hybrid poplars into biobased chemicals and liquid biofuels.  AHB is divided into five project topic areas designed to focus on all aspects of successfully producing advanced biofuels and bioproducts from hardwoods in the Pacific Northwest: feedstock development, conversion, sustainability, education, and extension.
