AN AGGREGATED UNDERSTANDING OF ALKALINE HYDROGEN PEROXIDE (AHP) PRETREATMENT OF BIOMASS AND HEMICELLULOSE CONVERSION
Despite significant efforts to achieve an efficient deconstruction of plant cell-wall and decrease its recalcitrance, biomass pretreatment continues to be challenging. The main biomass pretreatment strategies have not only ...
Renewable hydrocarbons for jet fuels from biomass and plastics via microwave-induced pyrolysis and hydrogenation processes
This dissertation aims to enhance the production of aromatic hydrocarbons in the catalytic microwave-induced pyrolysis, and maximize the production of renewable cycloalkanes for jet fuels in the hydrogenation process. In ...
Effects of Varying Forest Floor and Slash Retention on Soil Nutrient and Carbon Pools in a Regenerating Douglas-fir Tree Farm: NARA-Soils
This report provides soil temperature, moisture, and respiration data for two years after biomass harvesting, OM removal, and compaction treatments that bracketed the range of reality likely present in a biomass harvesting ...
Production of Lignocellulosic Isobutanol by Fermentation and Conversion to Biojet
Gevo has developed fermentation and process technology to convert biomass sugars to isobutanol and further into renewable jet fuel through chemical processing. As a key member of the NARA project, Gevo has developed GIFT®, ...
'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 ...
Estimating forest residue for biomass production
The webinar begins by describing the biomass supply chain and the issues with its management. This will lead to motivation of why measurement of forest residues is necessary for its successful management. The seminar then ...
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 ...
Feedstock Supply Chain Analysis
This report provides a comprehensive summary of wood waste available in construction and demolition solid waste stream networked through local material recycling facilities. In addition, physical and chemical analyses are ...
Pretreatment of Woody Biomass for Biofuel Production
Biofuel production from woody biomass through the sugar platform requires efficient production of fermentable sugars either chemically and enzymatically by hydrolyzing polysaccharides in wood cell walls. Enzymatic sugar ...
Plant Cell Walls to Alcohols
This lesson looks at the break down of plant material to demonstrate the production of biofuels.
