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, ...
Wood to Wing: Environmental Effects of Using Post Harvest, Residual Biomass to Produce Wood-Based Jet Fuel
This flier describes the environmental effects of using post h-harvest forest residuals to make biojet fuel.
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.
Feedstock Sourcing: NARA Years 1-3
(Northwest Advanced Renewables Alliance, 2015)
This report was completed by Weyerhaeuser staff and evaluates the cost and quality of softwood forest residual feedstock in the Pacific Northwest used to produce bio-jet fuel and co-products.
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 ...
Environmental Assessment of Biorefinery Co-Products
This report identifies the drivers for bio-product environmental performance and criteria for environmental preferability.
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.
