The Mexican government is funding an initiative to demonstrate industrial algae production to find out how viable it is for use in large-scale jet fuels production.
While other researchers are working on processes to convert waste into fuel, Ineos Bio’s plan would garner revenue from three (more…)
Researchers have discovered that the Agave plant, used in making tequila, may be an excellent source of biofuels, with two agave species producing yields of biofuels that far surpassed the yields from biofuel feedstocks such as corn, wheat, soybean, and sorghum. Reporting in the journal Global Change Biology Bioenergy, scientists said that 14 studies confirmed (more…)
One of the biggest green movements in the aviation industry has to be the focus on trying to find the perfect biofuels to cut down the carbon emissions given off by an airplane using standard jet fuel. Many aviation companies, fuel companies, and various branches of the military in both the United States and other nations have had varying degrees of success utilizing mixes (more…)
U.S. researchers have used a combination of enzymes that consume cellulose from non-food products to produce a high-quality hydrogen gas, a potential breakthrough in efforts to use biofuels to power hydrogen fuel cells. Scientists at Virginia Polytechnic Institute, the Oak Ridge National Laboratory, and the University of Georgia combined 14 (more…)
LanzaTech, a clean energy company that had its roots in a small New Zealand laboratory five years ago, is on the top of the biofuels world after winning a prestigious international “Technology of the Year Award”.
Dr Jennifer Holmgren, chief executive of LanzaTech, says last week’s Biofuels Digest Award tops off a fantastic year for the (more…)
New research suggests protocell “skins” could be the secret to building carbon-negative architecture.
Researchers in Europe are collaborating on a project to develop materials that could eventually make it possible for buildings to produce water in desert environments or harvest sunlight to produce biofuels. (more…)
From wind turbines to solar photovoltaic cells, sustainable business ventures have produced a plethora of well-tested methods for converting renewable energy into electricity. Though much remains to be done when it comes to actually replacing coal and other fossil fuel-based electricity with a clean energy grid, there is little doubt (more…)
