The outreach team for NARA will serve as a conduit between researchers and member of communities and help to transfer the science and technology of biofuels and important co-products to communities in the Northwest.
Why Get Involved?
Have your voice heard
Keep yourself informed
We value your perspectives and input
We believe that development of biofuels/co-products from woody biomass is a two-way process between the research teams, industry partners, and the community members such as yourself.

NARA's Five Teams
To meet its mission's goals, the Alliance is broken down into specific areas of focus:
- Education: Engage citizens, meet future workforce needs, enhance science literacy in biofuels, and help people understand how they're going to fit into the new energy economy.
- Sustainability Measurement: Evaluate and assess environmental, social, and economic viability of the overall wood to biofuels supply chain, guiding the project as it goes forward.
- Feedstocks: Take a multi-pronged approach for the development and sustainable production of feedstocks made from wood materials, including forest and mill residues, municipal solid waste, and specialty energy crops.
- Conversion: Provide a biomass-derived replacement for aviation fuel and other petroleum-derived chemicals in a way that is economically and technologically feasible.
- Outreach: Serve as a conduit between researchers and community stakeholders, helping to transfer the science and technology of biofuels and important co-products to communities in the Northwest.
