- A Revolution in Transportation Powered by Second-Generation Biofuels
April 2017 - Sidharth Seth
The emergence of biofuels as a viable alternative to fossil fuels would eliminate many high environmental, financial, and political costs. The costs of biofuel production cannot yet compete with that of fossil fuels. This paper shows how we can utilize second generation biofuels to satisfy 100% of our transportation needs.
- Fuel From Algae, Wood Chips OK’d for Airlines
Jul 14, 2011 - Louise Downing - firstenercastfinancial.com
Airlines won the backing of a U.S.- based technical-standards group to power their planes with a blend of traditional fuel and biofuel from inedible plants, the Air Transport Association said today.
- Teaching Algae to Make Fuel: New Process Could Lead to Production of Hydrogen Using Bioengineered Microorganisms
Jun 15, 2011 - sciencedaily.com
Many kinds of algae and cyanobacteria, common water-dwelling microorganisms, are capable of using energy from sunlight to split water molecules and release hydrogen, which holds promise as a clean and carbon-free fuel for the future. One reason this approach hasn't yet been harnessed for fuel production is that under ordinary circumstances, hydrogen production takes a back seat to the production of compounds that the organisms use to support their own growth.
- Biogas Is Renewable Energy's Cinderella
Mar 15, 2010 - David William House - renewableenergyworld.com
Examined at a fundamental level, the universe seems to begin in lofty abstractions that lead to prosaic realities. Thus mathematics encompasses physics, physics encompasses chemistry, chemistry encompasses biology, and it all leads to… well, us.
- E Wash scientists study biochar for energy
Mar 1, 2010 - Kevin McCullen - The Associated Press
Scientists in Eastern Washington are at the forefront of research into an ancient practice that shows promise as a clean fuel source, a way to improve soil condition and to capture carbon that otherwise would be released into the atmosphere.
- Turning Brown into Green
Feb 18, 2010 - fuelnj.com
After years of R&D and refined prototypes, we are proud to announce the launch of our UnifiedFUELS biomass processing plant system
- A bioenergy platform company utilizing proprietary technology
Feb 18, 2010 - Solena Group
Solena is a next generation zero emission bioenergy company that has developed integrated end-to-end solutions that would help satisfy the world's growing energy demands
Microbes Produce Fuels Directly from Biomass
Jan 28, 2010 - Lynn Yarris - Renewable Energy World
A collaboration led by researchers with the U.S. Department of Energy's Joint BioEnergy Institute (JBEI) has developed a microbe that can produce an advanced biofuel directly from biomass.
