Characterization of forest residuals for bio-jet fuel production

Presenter: Gevan Marrs, Feedstock Sourcing, NARA

Hosted by: Northwest Advanced Renewables Alliance (NARA)

Softwood feedstock samples collected throughout the Pacific Northwest have been characterized for carbohydrate, lignin, and extractives content. Some of the samples have received exhausting testing through pretreatment, hydrolysis and fermentation into alcohols. In addition, the cost impacts associated with various feedstock processing options have been quantified in order to evaluate the economic impacts to deliver a “standard sized” feedstock product for conversion into bio-jet fuel and co-products.
