Building A New Energy Economy

How can we produce clean-burning, cost-competitive biofuels to replace fossil fuels? What steps must we take to transition to an economy based on these alternatives—and to position the state of Washington to take the lead?

Washington State University scholars seek answers to these complex questions. To reduce the world’s reliance on petroleum, faculty researchers are developing renewable biofuels that can be produced cost-effectively. They are forging new solutions to address the threats of energy supply, climate change, pollution, and resource depletion.
