Woody biomass research grant to launch biofuel industry in the Pacific Northwest
Date:9/29/2011

s dependency on petroleum products to promoting resiliency and economic stability in forest-based communities," said Lowell.

The group will be conducting traditional extension activities, including providing workshops, Webinars, and newsletters, with the aim of helping communities and companies throughout the Pacific Northwest determine their role in building sustainable biofuels infrastructure and to move toward the establishment of a biofuels-based economy.

At the same time, NARA researchers will be forming regional alliances, identifying communities that might fit into the supply chain for a sustainable biofuels economy.

The outreach and extension team will:

  • Provide information and exchange with key governmental and industry leaders and the public
  • Establish a communications pipeline to inform policymakers who will be developing future policies on bioenergy.
  • Communicate and exchange information with groups such as Sustainable Aviation Fuel Northwest.
  • Communicate with economic development groups in rural communities, tribal groups, and the general public.
  • Help to transfer science and technology of biofuels and co-products
  • Professional conferences and workshops.
  • Field trips and facility demonstrations.
  • Web-based newsletter, an e-commerce site, and Webinars, in addition to the NARA Web site.
