Our Mission

To focus on sustainability, while developing regional biofuel solutions that are economically viable, socially acceptable, and meet the high environmental standards of the Pacific Northwest.


What is NARA?

Scientists from public universities, government laboratories and private industry from throughout the Northwest, and beyond, are joining together to focus on developing ways to turn one of the region's most plentiful commodities—wood and wood waste—into jet fuel.

Led by Washington State University, the Northwest Advanced Renewables Alliance (NARA) will take a holistic approach to building a supply chain for aviation biofuel with the goal of increasing efficiency in everything from forestry operations to conversion processes. Using. . . View More
