Researchers at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory Developed Technology That Can Convert Human Waste Into Sustainable Biofuel
December 2, 2016 --Last night's dinner could be tomorrow's liquid fuel. Yes, the technology to turn ordinary human waste into biocrude oil is here, thanks to developments at the Department of Energy'sPacific Northwest National Laboratory. The technology -- called hydrothermal liquefaction -- mimics the geological conditions the Earth uses to create crude oil by using high pressure and temperature to achieve in minutes something that takes Mother Nature millions of years. The resulting material is similar to...
White House Publishes Mid-Century Strategy For Deep Decarbonization
On November 16, 2016, the White House filed the Mid-Century Strategy for Deep Decarbonization with the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change under the Paris climate deal. The strategy highlights the role that U.S. government-funded research, development, and demonstration (RD&D) had on the technological advances of the last century, and the potential to increase the pace and reduce the costs of decarbonization using the full power of U.S. RD&D efforts focused on clean energy technologies. T...
EPA Signs Final RFS Requirements
On November 23, 2016, EPA Administrator, Gina McCarthy, signed the final rule on the RFS volume standards for 2017 and biobased diesel standards for 2018. This final rule will increase the renewable fuel volume requirements as reported in the Biobased and Renewable Products Advocacy Group (BRAG) post “EPA Releases Proposed Renewable Fuel Volume Requirements.” The proposed volume requirements are: Cellulosic biofuel, from 230 million gallons in 2016 to 311 million gallons in 2017; Advanced biofuel,...
Leaders of Sustainable Biofuels welcome Commission proposal on advanced biofuels specific target to decarbonise transport sector
Leaders of Sustainable Biofuels (LSB) welcome the European Commission proposal for a review of the Renewable Energy Directive, which sets the legislative framework for the implementation of the EU 2030 Climate and Energy policy objectives.We believe that by recognizing the role of advanced biofuels as a fast track option for the decarbonisation of the EU transport sector, the European Commission has made a significant step to enhance the EU innovation capacity and stimulate green growth.LSB particularly welcomes...
Renewable Fuels Announcement Strengthens Energy Security
The National Biodiesel Board (NBB) welcomed the release of new standards to support American jobs and energy security. The group applauds the administration for working to reduce America’s dependence on fossil fuels by raising biodiesel volumes under the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS). “The real winners with this announcement are American consumers who will now have access to even more cleaner burning, advanced biofuel,” said NBB CEO Donnell Rehagen. “These benefits extend far beyond the...
