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 ...
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 ...
Biomass Adventure Race
This adventure race lesson covers the four key stages of the biomass supply chain: production, pre-‐processing, conversion, and supplying to consumers.
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.
Making Chemistry Visible
The objective of this lesson is to explain and demonstrate the chemical process of turning woody biomass into biofuel.
Community Economic Impact of Hypothetical NARA Woody Biomass Jet Fuel Refineries in the Pacific Northwest
This study used regional input-output analysis (I/O) to measure the economic impacts of the introduction of the biorefinery facilities in the Pacific Northwest that convert woody biomass into biojet fuel and co-products.
TPO harvest residue information and forest market models for biorefinery siting potential
NARA scientists have focused on building supply chain solutions demonstrating forest harvest residues as a viable source of woody feedstock for production of biojet. A key aspect in supply chain logistics is biorefinery ...
'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 ...
