Busy, productive microbes use enzymes to break down leaves, stalks and other biomass and then convert that material into renewable fuels and chemicals.
A year after bulk carrier MV Wakashio ran aground in an environmentally sensitive area off Mauritius, Curtin University-led research has identified the incident as the first known spillage involving a new type of marine fuel oil.
Most of the biomass waste in the world is cellulose. Wouldn't it be awesome if we could effectively use cellulose for renewable energy to build a carbon-neutral, sustainable society?
Lee Lynd, the Queneau Distinguished Professor of Engineering at Dartmouth, will be the founding director of the new Advanced Second Generation Biofuel Laboratory located at the University of Campinas in Brazil.
More corn is grown in the United States than any other crop, but we only use a small part of the plant for food and fuel production; once people have harvested the kernels, the inedible leaves, stalks and cobs are left over.
The global weather system’s behaviors and features were considered to be influenced by migratory storms and local weather systems called cyclones and anticyclones.
Food company Valio and energy company St1 are establishing a joint venture to produce renewable biogas from dairy farm manure and other agricultural by-products mainly as fuel for heavy-duty transport.
A student from the Institute of Natural Sciences and Mathematics at South Ural State University (SUSU) and the winner of the UMNIK competition is working on a project to produce a fundamentally new catalyst that will help generate affordable biodiesel fuel from waste food raw materials.
A global effort to reduce sulfur and greenhouse gas emissions from ships has researchers from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory and other Department of Energy facilities investigating the potential use of marine biofuels.
New research suggests that a carbon-neutral biofuel could be created from methane extracted from lakes.
