Northwestern University synthetic biologists have developed a new rapid-prototyping system to accelerate the design of biological systems, reducing the time to produce sustainable biomanufacturing products from months to weeks. As global challenges like population growth and energy security intensify, the need for low-cost biofuels and bioproducts – like medicines and materials – produced using sustainable […]

An Oregon State University led international research collaboration has taken an important step toward the commercially viable manufacture of biobutanol, an alcohol whose strong potential as a fuel for gasoline-powered engines could pave the path away from fossil fuels. The key breakthrough is the development of a new metal organic framework, or MOF, that can […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology research now can show a new biofuel system that uses lignin found in biomass for the production of hydrogen. The novel technology has been developed for hydrogen production from the process, which involves electrons that are produced during the decomposition of biomass such as waste wood. The […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… University of Bonn now have shown cyanobacteria – colloquially called blue-green algae – can produce oil from water and carbon dioxide with the help of light. The result is unexpected. Until now, it was believed that this ability was limited to plants. Now its possible that blue-green algae will also become interesting as suppliers […]

Los Alamos National Laboratory scientists are taking biomass derived acetone – common nail polish remover – and use light to upgrade it to higher-mass hydrocarbons. Then they have a domestically generated product that can be blended with conventional jet fuel to power flight, while providing environmental benefits, creating domestic jobs, securing the nation’s global leadership […]
