Informing and Engaging Stakeholders
This report describes Northwest Advanced Renewable Alliance (NARA)’s outreach activities used to enhance bioenergy literacy and build supply chain coalitions and regional alliances.
This report describes NARA's education efforts used to enhance bioenergy literacy and develop a future workforce to participate in developing bioenergy services and technology.
This report is a series of five reports that cover the varied challenges and opportunities related to processing and transporting forest biomass to a biorefinery. Topics covered in this collection include 1) biomass recovery ...
Community Economic Impact of Hypothetical NARA Woody Biomass Jet Fuel Refineries in the Pacific Northwest
This study used regional input-output analysis (I/O) to measure the economic impacts of the introduction of the biorefinery facilities in the Pacific Northwest that convert woody biomass into biojet fuel and co-products.
Developing high biofuel coastal, Douglas-fir feedstocks by genetic selection
This report describes the development of a state-of-the-science genotyping array based on SNP technology for marker-based selection of phenotypes conducive to production of biofuels from woody residuals.
Environmental Impact Analysis to Support Biofuel Development in the Pacific Northwest – Water Resources Component
This report assesses the impact of woody biomass harvesting on stream channels and soil microbial communities.
Micronized Wood Pretreatment for the Production of Bio-Glycols
The purpose of this project was to determine whether S2G BioChemical’s (S2G) catalytic sugar-to-glycol technology was a suitable and cost-effective solution for cellulosic sugars produced using Washington State University’s ...
Process Engineering Analysis of Alternatives in the Gevo Ethanol to Olefin Process
Gevo has developed a process for the conversion of ethanol to olefins, in particular propylene and isobutylene. In May of 2015 Gevo process engineering completed a process model and cost estimate for a complete process ...
This report describes Poplar and Douglas-fir screening for lignin content and drought stress using recently developed high-throughput optical screening based on non-invasive image technology (Phenomics).
Local and Regional Wildlife Impacts of Biomass Removals
This work reviews the potential impact of silvicultural regimes, proposed to reduce fire hazard and improve forest health, on vertebrate abundance.
