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 ...
Making Chemistry Visible
The objective of this lesson is to explain and demonstrate the chemical process of turning woody biomass into biofuel.
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.
Estimating forest residue for biomass production
The webinar begins by describing the biomass supply chain and the issues with its management. This will lead to motivation of why measurement of forest residues is necessary for its successful management. The seminar then ...
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 ...
CO2 and Biofuel Transportation Adventure Race
In this lesson, students will be tasked with determining the best method of transporting slash from the environment to a pretreatment facility. Students will be given a choice of one of three transportation methods and ...
Community Economic Impact of Hypothetical NARA Woody Biomass Jet Fuel Refineries in the Pacific Northwest
This study used regional input-output analysis (I/O) to measure the economic impacts of the introduction of the biorefinery facilities in the Pacific Northwest that convert woody biomass into biojet fuel and co-products.
Biomass Adventure Race
This adventure race lesson covers the four key stages of the biomass supply chain: production, pre-‐processing, conversion, and supplying to consumers.
Long-term soil productivity and sustainability of forest harvest residue harvesting
Forest harvesting intrinsically removes organic matter and associated nutrients; these exports may impact soil productivity of managed forests. We will examine the effects of removing forest floor and harvest residues on ...
'Woods-to-Wake' life cycle assessment of residual woody biomass based jet-fuel
The residual woody biomass (a.k.a harvest slash) produced during forest harvest operations in the Pacific Northwest, is generally burned in the forest or left on the forest floor to decompose. Drop-in biofuel production ...
