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 ...
Process Engineering Analysis of Alternatives in the Gevo Ethanol to Olefin Process
Gevo has developed a process for the conversion of ethanol to olefins, in particular propylene and isobutylene. In May of 2015 Gevo process engineering completed a process model and cost estimate for a complete process ...
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.
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, ...
Environmental Impact Analysis to Support Biofuel Development in the Pacific Northwest – Water Resources Component
This report assesses the impact of woody biomass harvesting on stream channels and soil microbial communities.
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 ...
Wood to Wing: The Economics of a Wood-Based Biorefinery in Longview, Washington
This flier describes the economic considerations from a potential biorefinery based in Longview WA.
