Red Rock receives Wood Innovations Grant from U.S. Forest Service

June 7, 2022 |

In Colorado, Red Rock has received a Wood Innovations Grant from the U.S. Forest Service to fund its project to convert post-fire charred waste woody biomass to sustainable aviation fuel & renewable diesel fuel. Wildfires across the western U.S. have become a major problem over the past several decades, now consuming approximately 8.2 million acres per year on average, while federal suppression costs alone spiral into billions of dollars every year. Red Rock’s project with the U.S. Forest Service aims to utilize the increasingly abundant post-fire restoration material to produce low-carbon SAF and diesel fuel.
