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.
Sustainable Feedstock Production
This report provides improved allometric biomass equations for intensively managed stands and nutrient analyses of the biomass components included in these equations. This work will enable a more accurate estimation of ...
Production of Jet Fuel using Biochemcat
This report describes efforts to adapt the BioChemCat technology to convert lignocellulosic biomass into volatile fatty acids.
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.
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).
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.
Biorefinery Value Chain Outputs
This study characterizes the structure of the US biofuels industry and US bio-based chemicals industry while also examining the cellulosic biofuel biorefineries regarding commercialization factors.
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 ...
Biomass Modeling and Assessment
This report describes two models: the NARA Biomass model (NBM) and the Land Use and Resource model.
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.
