DOE: US transportation sector consumed 1.4 quadrillion Btu of fuel made from biomass in 2018; ~5%

Of the 28.4 quadrillion Btu (quads) of energy consumed by the US transportation sector in 2018, 1.4 quads (4.9%) were produced from biomass, according to the US Department of Energy (DOE).

Fuel ethanol made up 81.4% of biomass-based transportation fuels in 2018, followed by biodiesel (17.1%) and other (1.5%).


Note: The “other” category includes fuel blending components produced from renewable sources that meet the requirements of advanced biofuels. Source: U.S. Energy Information Administration, Monthly Energy Review, September 2019, Tables 10.2b and 2.5.



Gasify lignin from cellulose ethanol plants then SMR renewable methane to make bio synthetic gasoline. Renewable E85 made available for PHEVs would help.
