Pacific Northwest Columbia River Corridor Project

Grays Harbor Project Renewable Fuels

Why the Pacific Northwest Columbia River Corridor?


  • Multiple Sites are available along the Columbia River. NWABF has the Sites ranked and is pursuing an LOI with its primary choice of land. A ranking system by a matrix of important features is aiding the Company in its selection process.
  • Similar Projects and EIS type studies have been performed for Projects that create much more pollution and emissions than the NWABF Project.  Therefore, the mood is very positive that Project permitting will pass the “smell” test.
  • All Sites are Zoned Industrial. The price of each Site is Competitive.
  • Infrastructure
    • Pipelines to Airport are accessible through existing companies who are anxious to be part of the Project.
    • Pipeline to Barge Carriers.
    • Water Access with Dolphins, Terminals, and Dock are consistent with the Sites.
    • Natural Gas, Water, Electric and Rail all Available On-sites
    • Multiple Transportation Arteries Available
  • Woody Bio-mass Services Located in vicinity of properties
    • Grinding Services
    • Chipping Services
    • Large Sawmill Operations
    • The feedstock is Within a Reasonable Distance North and South, and there are Government studies that verify its existence.


  • Woody Biomass Operations On-site
  • Multiple LOI’s Executed with Well-known Suppliers
  • Confirmed over 3X of the Annual Volume Available
  • Verifiable Redundancy

Political Environment Positives

  • Seattle Port Authority
    • Owns some of the Required and Available Infrastructure to the Airport
    • Owns the Airport
    • Infrastructure Already in Place for Delivery of Renewable Aviation Fuel
    • Partners Who Have Necessary “Blending” Capability for the Project Being Engaged
    • Access to Terminals for Loading/Offloading of Renewable Aviation Fuel for our Off-taker
    • Access to Dolphins and Dock at Property Site
    • Access to Timber Resources Loading and Offloading via Truck or Barge in place.
  • Columbia River Corridor
    • Distressed Opportunity Zones
    • New Market Tax Credits
    • Familiarity of Industry
  • Benefits Columbia River Corridor counties with Increased Taxes and Jobs
  • Research Firms in State of WA Who Provide Critically, Verifiable Woody Biomass Availability Data and Statistics, (NARA, DNR), Willing to Participate
  • State of Washington Senate, Department of Natural Resources and Governor Support Green Initiatives

Why Woody Biomass:

  • Woody Biomass produces near-zero sulfur, significantly less than oil-based renewable aviation fuel, and reduces dependence on Carbon-based fuels.
  • USDA (NARA Project) developed a 5-year comprehensive approach to evaluating woody biomass building a supply chain for aviation biofuel to increase efficiency from forest to technology processes
  • The NARA Project is the most ambitious and comprehensive project to date that defines demand, opportunity, support, and supply chain that make woody biomass one of the most available and efficient biomass feedstock available to produce aviation fuel.
  • The project was conducted and headed by Washington State University with support from the University of Washington, Oregon State University, private industry, and many additional participants and contributors.
