This collection contains supply chain analyses targeted for an industry that uses forest residuals to produce bio-jet fuel and co-products. Analyses focus on regions in the Pacific Northwest. The Integrated Design Experience (IDX) course, conducted at Washington State University, generated these reports for the NARA project. Various NARA researchers authored additional supplementary items.
