Biofuel
April 5, 2013, Blacksburg, VA – A team of Virginia Tech researchers has discovered a way to extract large quantities of hydrogen from any source of biomass, a breakthrough that has the potential to bring a low-cost, environmentally friendly fuel source to the world.
April 3, 2013, Athens, GA – Researchers at the University of Georgia have found a way to transform the carbon dioxide trapped in the atmosphere into useful industrial products. Their discovery may soon lead to the creation of biofuels made directly from the carbon dioxide in the air that is responsible for trapping the sun's rays and raising global temperatures.
April 3, 2013, Ottawa, ON — The Canadian Renewable Fuels Association (CRFA) applauds the official launch of the Growing Forward 2 (GF2) policy framework announced by the Hon. Gerry Ritz, Minister of Agriculture on April 1, 2013.
March 28, 2013, Stockholm, SE – The World Bioenergy Association (WBA) is highlighting opportunities in the field of modern bioenergy by publishing a short series of science-based information fact sheets. The fourth fact sheet focuses on the importance of developing advanced biofuels.
The biomass world has high hopes for algae, and rightfully so: some of the thousands of strains of the slimy substance have great potential to become a sustainable source of biomass and the next big biofuel.
March 14, 2013, Durham, NC — Southern Research Institute announced it has entered into a cooperative agreement with the U.S. Dept. of Energy to develop a mild liquefaction process that will economically convert biomass to petroleum refinery‐ready bio‐oils.
March 13, 2013, London, UK – Ethanol made from inedible matter such as crop waste and household trash will match the price of corn-based ethanol by 2016, potentially spurring output of the motor fuel, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.
March 11, 2013 Vancouver, BC – Lignol Energy Corporation announced that it had made an investment in and signed a agreement to collaborate with Australia’s Territory Biofuels Limited.
March 7, 2013, Washington, DC - A new survey of the algae industry conducted by the Algae Biomass Organization (ABO) shows the industry expects increasing production in 2013 and price-competitiveness with fossil fuels by 2020.
March 5, 2013, London, UK – Biofuels made from wood waste and sugarcane have languished well below expectations for years but new production coming on line promises explosive growth by 2015, says the chief executive of producer Beta Renewables.
March 1, 2013, Houston, TX – “Green” chemistry developed at Rice University is at the center of a new U.S. government effort to turn plant waste into fatty acids, and then into fuel.
February 26, 2013, Washington, DC – Several U.S. companies combined to produce about 20,000 gallons of fuels using cellulosic biomass from commercial-scale facilities in late 2012, according to a report from the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA).
February, 20, 2013, Washington, DC - Two biofuels trade groups lambasted a European Union decision to impose an anti-dumping duty on U.S.-made ethanol as a protectionist move and said they would challenge the tariff "in every manner possible."
February 19, 2013, West Lafayette, IN – A termite's own biology with help from microorganisms called protists, are keys to the insect's digestion of woody material, according to a Purdue University scientist.
February 15, 2013, Los Alamos, NM — Scientists led by Los Alamos National Laboratory have made a major step forward recently towards transforming biomass-derived molecules into fuels.
The production of biofuel from waste has taken a step forward in Canada, as the country’s first full-scale commercial plant for the production of cellulosic ethanol hits the construction phase.
With the ethanol fuel industry in high gear, some are looking ahead to the next generation of biofuel and at GreenField that means cellulosic ethanol.
Renewable fuels have come a long way over the past 20 years as rising energy prices have increased the demand for clean alternatives to oil, such as ethanol. GreenField Ethanol has certainly seen it all in its journey to becoming Canada’s leading producer.
February 8, 2013, Athens, GA – Researchers at the University of Georgia say newly discovered plant structure may lead to improved biofuel processing.
February 6, 2013, Boston, MA – According to a new report, growing demand will place stress on biomass feedstocks, requiring new innovations if more bio-based products are to replace petroleum-based ones.
