Process of Converting Woody Biomass to Sustainable Aviation Fuel
Woody biomass is organic matter from trees and plants. Tree and plant debris is used as an energy source. Energy comes from the sun through photosynthesis and is released when woody biomass is burned or decomposes.
Woody biomass is defined (by Forest and Rangelands) as the by-product of management, restoration, and hazardous jet kerosene reduction treatments, as well as the product of natural disasters, including trees and woody plants (limbs, tops, needles, leaves, and other woody parts, grown in a forest, woodland, or rangeland environment).
How NWABF’s Process Works
Leftover wood and woody plant biomass is converted to produce sustainable jet kerosene.
Wood scraps, sawdust, and forest debris are collected and prepared for conversion
The prepared biomass goes through a thermochemical process and all forms of energy are collected to create syngas
The syngas is cleaned and cracked to produce renewable kerosene (jet kerosene) also known as Sustainable Aviation Fuel
