Alaska Airlines participates in biofuel study

By Jerry Limone

Alaska Airlines, Washington State University and Portland, Seattle-Tacoma and Spokane airports have launched a strategic initiative to promote aviation biofuel development in the Pacific Northwest.

The project will examine the development of a sustainable biofuel industry, including biomass production and harvest, refining, transport infrastructure and use by airlines.

It will include an analysis of potential biomass sources that are indigenous to the Pacific Northwest, including algae, agriculturally based oilseeds such as camelina and wood byproducts.

The project is jointly funded by the participating parties and is expected to be completed in approximately six months.

The assessment process will be managed by Climate Solutions, a nonprofit organization in Olympia, Wash.
