Nanyang Technological University’s study showed how encasing algae protein in liquid droplets can dramatically enhance the algae’s light-harvesting and energy-conversion properties by up to three times. The variety of humble algae that cover the surface of ponds and seas could hold the key to boosting the efficiency of artificial photosynthesis, allowing scientists to produce more […]

Engineers at Lancaster University have led research that discovered a way to generate renewable biofuel additives, using radiation that could be derived from nuclear waste. The renewable proportion of petroleum fuels is set to increase to 20 percent over the coming years, meaning the discovery of a new production pathway for such additives/biofuels could help […]

University of Illinois College of Agricultural, Consumer and Environmental Sciences researchers have released information in four new studies that explore chemical-free pretreatment methods, development of high-throughput phenotyping methods, and commercial-scale techno-economic feasibility of producing fuel from energycane in various scenarios. The studies begin to answer that challenges remaining in processing the crops to extract fuel […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… Technical University of Munich announced their work with an international research team has now made new findings regarding the role of water molecules in catalyzing chemical reactions. Using zeolites that are extremely porous materials, where ten grams can have an internal surface area the size of a soccer field, the cavities make them useful […]

Kobe University engineers have developed a technique to repartition carbon resources from carbohydrates to lipids in microalgae. They hope that this method can be applied to biofuel production. A cross-institutional collaboration developed the technique to repartition carbon resources from carbohydrates to lipids in microalgae. This discovery was the result of a collaboration between a research […]
