Western Montana Corridor: Sustainability (Vol. 4)
(Northwest Advanced Renewables Alliance, 10/1/2013 )
This volume evaluates the sustainability of producing bio-jet fuel and co-products made from wood residuals in the western Montana corridor region. Preliminary analyses for techno-economics, carbon life cycle, community ...
Pacific Northwest Wood-Based Biofuels: Preliminary Scoping (Vol. 1)
(Northwest Advanced Renewables Alliance, 3/1/2015 0)
This report describes NARA's approach to evaluating a supply chain for the NARA region (ID, MT, OR, WA) to produce bio-jet fuel and co-products. The report also assesses the natural, physical, civic, economic and policy ...
Long-term soil productivity and sustainability of forest harvest residue harvesting
Forest harvesting intrinsically removes organic matter and associated nutrients; these exports may impact soil productivity of managed forests. We will examine the effects of removing forest floor and harvest residues on ...
'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 ...
Mid-Cascade to Pacific Corridor: Profile (Vol. 1)
(Northwest Advanced Renewables Alliance, 10/1/2014 )
This report describes NARA's approach to evaluating a supply chain in Washington and Oregon state to produce bio-jet fuel and co-products. The report also assesses the natural, physical, civic, financial and policy assets ...
Decision support for forest harvest residue collection
Forest harvest residues are often available at roadside landings as a byproduct of the log manufacturing process. This residue is usually available for renewable energy production if desired, however there is a significant ...
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.
Northwest Advanced Renewables Alliance: Key Accomplishments to Date, July 2013
This fact sheet describes the key accomplishments of the Northwest Advanced Renewables Alliance as of July 2013.
Northwest Advanced Renewables Alliance: Taking Wood to New Heights
This flier summarizes the mission and goals of the Northwest Advanced Renewables Alliance. The flier reads, "Led by Washington State University and funded by the USDA National Institute of Food and Agriculture, the Northwest ...
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.
