Improving Biorefineries Efficiency with Bubbles

A team of researchers from Japan's Tohoku University has developed a new method for the pre- treatment of biomass that could lead to more efficient production of biofuels and biochemicals. The new method involves crushing the leaves and stalks of maize plants and placing the resulting powder in a solution of sodium percarbonate (SP). The product is then passed through a "hydrodynamic...

Agricultural waste could be used as biofuel

Straw-powered cars could be a thing of the future thanks to new research from the University of East Anglia (UEA). A new study pinpoints five strains of yeast capable of turning agricultural by-products, such as straw, sawdust and corncobs, into bioethanol - a well-known alcohol-based biofuel. It is estimated that more than 400 billion litres of bioethanol could be produced each...

Opportunities in Fuels and Chemicals from Syngas and Methane Fermentation (Conference 16th July 2014)

The main theme of this conference (organized by the SCI Science and Enterprise group and Bio Base NWE), will be gasification of biomass and wastes to produce synthesis gas (syngas), and conversion of syngas and methane from a variety of sources into liquid fuels and chemicals. The conference will explore the technologies being developed and their commercial potential. Find out more ...

CSIRO is seeking commercial and collaborative research partners in the field of biobased technologies

Research at CSIRO has developed a platform conversion technology that is able to convert terpene feedstock from biomass into renewable monomers and platform chemicals that are precursors able to construct or modify biopolymers. This renewable chemicals opportunity is producing, evaluating and modifying novel terpene based building blocks which can then be used to produce a range...
