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 ...
Exploring the Biomass Recalcitrance of Douglas Fir for Improving Bioproducts and Biofuels Production
Forestry residuals can potentially provide an abundant source of biomass feedstock for an emerging renewable chemicals and fuels industry, particularly in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States. Although Douglas ...
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 ...
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.
