Renewable hydrocarbons for jet fuels from biomass and plastics via microwave-induced pyrolysis and hydrogenation processes
This dissertation aims to enhance the production of aromatic hydrocarbons in the catalytic microwave-induced pyrolysis, and maximize the production of renewable cycloalkanes for jet fuels in the hydrogenation process. In ...
Process Design and Economics for Biochemical Conversion of Softwood Lignocellulosic Biomass to Isoparaffinic Kerosene and Lignin Co-products
This techno-economic analysis has been prepared for a greenfield integrated biorefinery to produce renewable jet fuel and co-products from softwood forest harvest residuals.
Informing and Engaging Stakeholders
This report describes Northwest Advanced Renewable Alliance (NARA)’s outreach activities used to enhance bioenergy literacy and build supply chain coalitions and regional alliances.
Feedstock Analysis for Poplar Plantations within the Western Montana Corridor
(Northwest Advanced Renewables Alliance, 2014)
This report was conducted by GreenWood Resources and examines the opportunity for poplar biomass plantations to supplement the supply of biomass originating as logging and thinning residues from coniferous stands in western ...
Refinery-to-Wing Stakeholder Assessment
This report measures and ranks perceived drivers and barriers to an economically viable sustainable jet fuel industry in the PNW region through personal interviews with key aviation fuel supply chain stakeholders and ...
Production of 1,000 Gallons of Biojet in the NARA Consortium
This report describes the steps and conditions used to produce 1,000 gallons of biojet fuel made from forest residuals.
Rational design of polymer-based absorbents: application to the fermentation inhibitor furfural
(Biotechnology for Biofuels, 2015)
Reducing the amount of water-soluble fermentation inhibitors like furfural is critical for downstream bio-processing steps to biofuels. A theoretical approach for tailoring absorption polymers to reduce these pretreatment ...
This report reviews how both federal and state governments have affected the biofuels industry in the United States and explores the demand for advanced biofuels from the US military and for commercial aviation.
Reducing Your Carbon Foot Print, One Step At A Time
During this lesson, students will understand that carbon dioxide (CO2) is one of the largest contributors to climate change and learn how they can reduce CO2 emissions at home and within their state. Students will also ...
Aspen Modeling of the NARA Conversion Processes
The report provides a set of process flow diagrams, process parameters, and mass and energy balances, which define the NARA conversion process. The described process begins at the plant gate with the reception of forest ...
