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 ...
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 ...
Informed Stakeholder Assessment
To address social sustainability, a large scale social assessment of informed stakeholders in the NARA region was conducted using a mixed methods survey to gain understanding of stakeholders’ knowledge, levels of support, ...
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.
Making Chemistry Visible
The objective of this lesson is to explain and demonstrate the chemical process of turning woody biomass into biofuel.
Environmental Assessment of Biorefinery Co-Products
This report identifies the drivers for bio-product environmental performance and criteria for environmental preferability.
Value of the Slash of a Tree
In this lesson students will look at forest ecosystems and determine the estimated slash of the tress. Other forest ecosystem discussions can be implemented as well such as fire ecology.
Environmental assessment of mild bisulfite pretreatment of forest residues into fermentable sugars for biofuel production
(Biotechnology for Biofuels, 2016)
Sugar production via pretreatment and enzymatic hydrolysis of cellulosic feedstock, in this case softwood harvest residues, is a critical step in the biochemical conversion pathway towards drop-in biofuels. Mild bisulfite ...
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.
The Great Debate
This lesson is designed to help students understand the differences in stakeholder perspectives and the collaboration required to overcome the complex problem of creating a bioenergy infrastructure.
