Clean Sugar and Lignin Pretreatment Technology
(Northwest Advanced Renewables Alliance, 2014)
In this report, researchers evaluate the use of wood milling as a pretreatment step for sugar hydrolysate production from Douglas-fir forest residuals.
Biorefinery Value Chain Outputs
This study characterizes the structure of the US biofuels industry and US bio-based chemicals industry while also examining the cellulosic biofuel biorefineries regarding commercialization factors.
Formulations for Coproduct Lignin-Based Plastics
This report describes the creation of polymeric blends containing lignosulfonates derived from NARA lignin and provides a techno-economic assessment for their use as an alternative source of engineering plastics.
Characterization and Potential Applications of Milled Wood Lignin Obtained from Sugar Depot Biorefinery Process
This report aims at characterizing the structural properties of milled wood lignin and identifying its potential application.
Making Chemistry Visible
The objective of this lesson is to explain and demonstrate the chemical process of turning woody biomass into biofuel.
Conversion of Lignin to High Value, Large Market Products
In this report, lignin, derived from the wood-to-biojet conversion process developed by NARA, is fully characterized and used to develop activated carbon products of commercial use.
Application Development of Lignin in Valuable Engineering Polymers Via Mild Thermochemical and Mechanochemical Process
NARA researchers developed new technologies for the preparation of engineering polymers from NARA lignin and explore the applications.
Plant Cell Walls to Alcohols
This lesson looks at the break down of plant material to demonstrate the production of biofuels.
