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 ...
Characterization of forest residuals for bio-jet fuel production
Softwood feedstock samples collected throughout the Pacific Northwest have been characterized for carbohydrate, lignin, and extractives content. Some of the samples have received exhausting testing through pretreatment, ...
Creating a research to classroom pipeline: closing the gap between science research and educators
As scientific research evolves information in (K-12) curriculum can quickly become outdated. New research can greatly change the way we teach about science topics and the content we want students to understand. Educators, ...
Mid-Cascade to Pacific Corridor: Supplemental
This document provides supplemental material related to the Mid-Cascade to Pacific Corridor analysis that describes hazard mitigation strategies.
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 ...
Pacific Northwest Wood-Based Biofuels: Site Selection & Design
This document presents Pacific Northwest supply chain estimates, case studies of specific sites within the PNW region, and conceptual master plans for consideration by stakeholders and communities as they search for ways ...
'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 ...
Olympic Peninsula: Site Analysis Report
This report provides supply chain estimates and case studies for the Herman Brothers operation in Port Angeles, WA, and the Port Townsend Paper Corporation in Port Townsend, WA.
From the forest to the classroom: Energy literacy as a co-product of biofuels research
The Northwest Advanced Renewables Alliance (NARA) is a biofuel research project that includes a holistic educational approach to energy literacy. NARA research is focused on woody biomass as a feedstock for biofuels and ...
