  • Wood Chemical Composition and Products 

    Northwest Advanced Renewables Alliance (1/1/2014)
    This graphic lays out the chemical composition of the forest residuals used by NARA to create biofuel. The byproducts of the residual conversion process are mapped to commercial uses such as paper, textile fiber, and bio-jet fuel.
  • Wood to Wing 

    Northwest Advanced Renewables Alliance (3/1/2014)
    Converting forest residuals into chemical products such a bio-jet fuel is anticipated to provide numerous benefits to society. As biofuels displace fossil fuels, U.S. energy independence is strengthened and net carbon ...
