Environmental assessment of mild bisulfite pretreatment of forest residues into fermentable sugars for biofuel production
(Biotechnology for Biofuels, 2016)
Sugar production via pretreatment and enzymatic hydrolysis of cellulosic feedstock, in this case softwood harvest residues, is a critical step in the biochemical conversion pathway towards drop-in biofuels. Mild bisulfite ...
Creating a research to classroom pipeline: closing the gap between science research and educators
As scientific research evolves information in (K-12) curriculum can quickly become outdated. New research can greatly change the way we teach about science topics and the content we want students to understand. Educators, ...
From the forest to the classroom: Energy literacy as a co-product of biofuels research
The Northwest Advanced Renewables Alliance (NARA) is a biofuel research project that includes a holistic educational approach to energy literacy. NARA research is focused on woody biomass as a feedstock for biofuels and ...
Rational design of polymer-based absorbents: application to the fermentation inhibitor furfural
(Biotechnology for Biofuels, 2015)
Reducing the amount of water-soluble fermentation inhibitors like furfural is critical for downstream bio-processing steps to biofuels. A theoretical approach for tailoring absorption polymers to reduce these pretreatment ...
