Welcome to: WOOD-TO-WHEELS

Wood-To-Wheels is a collaborative program of the Sustainable Futures Institute (SFI) to establish a transportation fuel system based upon woody biomass. SFI collaborators are researching innovations that address the entire value chain from plant genomics to consumer attitudes. The goal is to increase the overall efficiency of converting solar energy captured in forest and other biomass resources.

Collaborators are focusing on:


The W2W Vision   News & Events

Wood to Wheels is an interdisciplinary research and education effort spanning the entire life cycle of forest-based energy systems and leading to a sustainable and fundamental shift in how fuel products, commodity chemicals, and high-value specialty compounds/polymers are produced and used in vehicular transportation systems.
