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 […]

An Earlham Institute new study shows theMiscanthus genus of grasses can be grown in lower agricultural grade conditions – such as marginal land – due to their remarkable resilience and photosynthetic capacity at low temperatures. Some grasses are a sustainable energy source that could be a driving force towards achieving net zero carbon emissions, according […]

Researchers at the Leibniz Institute of Plasma Science and Technology are testing plasma formation in biomass and finding a promising method for the pretreatment of biomass. Producing biogas from the bacterial breakdown of biomass presents options for a greener energy future, but the complex composition of biomass comes with challenges. Cellulose and woody lignocellulose are […]
