Sandia National Laboratories is helping HelioBioSys Inc.and they have patented a group of three single-celled, algae-like organisms that, when grown together, can produce high quantities of sugar just right for making biofuels. The partnership is to help HelioBioSys Inc. learn whether farming them on a large scale would be successful. We might not cook with […]

Washington State University researchers have developed a way to grow algae more efficiently maturing in days instead of weeks. The development makes algae more viable for several industries, including biofuels. The team’s research has been published in the journal Algal Research. Researchers would like to produce algae efficiently because of its potential environmental benefits. Oil […]

University of California – Santa Barbara (UCSB) scientist Michelle O’Malley has discovered enzyme complexes in herbivore digestive tracts that show promise for sustainable fuels and medicines. Lignocellulose is an abundant plant product that in its natural form isn’t suitable for making fuels and other products. It needs changed into sugars. O’Malley, an assistant professor of […]

A team from the University of Pittsburgh and the University of Oklahoma investigated the full life cycle impact of one promising ‘second-generation biofuel’ produced from short-rotation oak. The study found that second-generation biofuels made from managed trees and perennial grasses may provide a sustainable fuel resource. Over the years numerous studies have raised critical concerns […]

A University of Washington (UW) research team has made a new stride forward on a solution to remove beetle-killed trees from the forest and use them to make renewable transportation fuels or high-value chemicals. An important factor is they refined this technique to process larger pieces of wood than ever before, saving time and money […]
