  • The role of industrial symbiosis in promoting bio-fuel feedstock uses for UK food and fibre production

    The UK government has promoted bio-fuels as a major contribution in tackling global warming and realising its sustainable development objectives. However, there is now clear evidence that first-generation bio-fuels suffer from serious eco-inefficiencies. UK bio-fuel policy instruments, far from supporting the development of sustainable energy alternatives, may in fact be adding to habitat loss, ...

  • Assessment of the EU target on renewable energy for transport in the framework of the European vegetable oil sector

    Biofuels is currently driving the interest in bioenergy sector. The recently issued Renewable Energy Directive (2009/28/EC) confirms the 10% target, set by the EC, for energy from renewable sources in transport. The European Union is the largest producer of biodiesel in the world and biodiesel is also the most important biofuel used in the EU. The aim of this paper is to investigate the biomass ...

  • Anticipated Indirect Land Use Change Associated with Expanded Use of Biofuels and Bioliquids in the EU – An Analysis of the National Renewable Energy Action Plans

    This study represents a first analysis and estimate of the effects of Indirect Land Use Change (ILUC) associated with the increased use of conventional biofuels that EU Member States have planned for within their National Renewable Energy Action Plans (NREAPs). These documents specify how European governments plan to deliver their transport targets under the Renewable Energy Directive (RED). 23 ...

  • EPA Anticipates That Sorghum Based Biofuels Could Qualify For RFS

    EPA announced that renewable fuels produced from sorghum biomass could qualify as cellulosic fuel under the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS). This is a result of a preliminary analysis of the Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions resulting from the growth and transport of biomass sorghum feedstocks that are used to make biofuels. The analysis, which was conducted in response to a petition from the National ...

  • Using Venturi Scrubber Technology for Syngas Cleaning

    As part of our nation's program to reduce dependence on fossil fuels, various gasification technologies are being applied. These processes take renewable organic material and, through the application of heat and pressure, convert the materials into syngas for further use. Arguably, in nearly all of these processes, the most critical design aspect is the reliable and efficient removal of ...

  • Reducing the Economic Friction of Regulation

    Last month, we looked at two distinctly different bioenergy business models that are merging. Energy profit centers and waste cost-recovery facilities are learning the benefits of each other's business model. The resulting projects generate maximum revenue with lower production costs. The same kind of business model duality occurs in biomass energy regulation. There are more than two kinds of ...
