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 ...
Process Design and Economics for Biochemical Conversion of Softwood Lignocellulosic Biomass to Isoparaffinic Kerosene and Lignin Co-products
This techno-economic analysis has been prepared for a greenfield integrated biorefinery to produce renewable jet fuel and co-products from softwood forest harvest residuals.
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.
Soil Carbon Analysis
This report assesses the carbon and nitrogen concentrations and stump density in thinned or harvested Douglas-fir plantation forests.
Environmental Assessment of Biorefinery Co-Products
This report identifies the drivers for bio-product environmental performance and criteria for environmental preferability.
Refinery-to-Wing Stakeholder Assessment
This report measures and ranks perceived drivers and barriers to an economically viable sustainable jet fuel industry in the PNW region through personal interviews with key aviation fuel supply chain stakeholders and ...
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, ...
Production of Lignocellulosic Isobutanol by Fermentation and Conversion to Biojet
Gevo has developed fermentation and process technology to convert biomass sugars to isobutanol and further into renewable jet fuel through chemical processing. As a key member of the NARA project, Gevo has developed GIFT®, ...
Pretreatment of Woody Biomass for Biofuel Production
Biofuel production from woody biomass through the sugar platform requires efficient production of fermentable sugars either chemically and enzymatically by hydrolyzing polysaccharides in wood cell walls. Enzymatic sugar ...
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 ...
