University of Georgia scientist Puneet Dwivedi’s research replaces petroleum-based aviation fuel with sustainable aviation fuel derived from a type of mustard plant. The study shows the plant oil can reduce carbon emissions by up to 68%. Dwivedi led a team that estimated the break-even price and life cycle carbon emissions of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) […]

The chip will let scientists study enzymes faster and more comprehensively than ever before. For much of human history, animals and plants were perceived to follow a different set of rules than […]

Pacific Northwest National Laboratory has announced a patented process for converting alcohol sourced from renewable or industrial waste gasses into jet or diesel fuel. The process is being scaled up at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory with the help of partners at Oregon State University and the carbon-recycling experts at LanzaTech. Two key technologies power […]

Scientists at Friedrich-Schiller-Universitaet Jena have succeeded in splitting water using an electrocatalyst instead of electrolysis. The way in which a compound inspired by nature produces hydrogen has now been described in detail by an international research team from the University of Jena, Germany and the University of Milan-Bicocca, Italy. These findings are the foundation for […]

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 […]
