Northwest Advanced Renewables Alliance capped off its first year with an annual meeting held in Missoula Montana September 13th and 14th, 2012. This event convened over 100 NARA contributors from our affiliate institutions across the country. In addition, over 50 individuals, representing varied interest groups, came to meet NARA members and participate in the meeting.
The meeting format offered panel presentations and discussions covering NARA’s progress and future directions arranged within NARA’s five goals: sustainable biojet from wood residuals, valuable lignin co-products, pilot supply chain coalitions, rural economic development, and energy literacy.
Thursday evening’s poster session hosted over 50 posters showcasing NARA related work completed in the first year. Press coverage was provided by Rob Chaney with the Missoulian and Dennis Bragg at kpax.
