Advanced Hardwood Biofuels Northwest (AHB) is a consortium of Northwest university and industry partners led by the University of Washington. AHB is working to prepare Washington, Oregon, Northern California and Northern Idaho for a sustainable hardwood biofuels industry.
Washington State University (WSU) leads the Extension and outreach portions of the project by ensuring that poplar growers and local Extension professionals are able to make informed decisions. The outreach efforts focus on biofuel feedstock production and fostering bioenergy education by engaging people, organizations, and communities to advance knowledge, economic well-being, and quality of life. Researchers at WSU also work on developing improved hybrid poplar feedstocks.
