  • Biofuels searching for a place in the sun

    Biofuels have long been viewed as a means to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from vehicles. However recent research indicates that extracting this fuel from plants has the potential to release more greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions than the burning of fossil fuels. This is just one of many problems facing biofuels as it seeks to find a place in the renewable energy landscape. Currently the ...

  • Hiden’s HPR-40 System and Biofuels From Algae

    Algae-based biofuels such as biodiesel or bioethanol, have significant advantages over crop-based biofuels. Algae grow at a significantly faster rate than more complex plants, they have far greater yield per unit area and they can be grown in compact, closed systems. One further advantage is the short lifespan and hence a faster cycle of testing and research into suitable biofuel candidates. It ...

  • Grape waste could make competitive biofuel

    The solid waste left over from wine-making could make a competitive biofuel, University of Adelaide researchers have found. Published in the journal Bioresource Technology, the researchers showed that up to 400 litres of bioethanol could be produced by fermentation of a tonne of grape marc (the leftover skins, stalks and seeds from ...

  • Hart Releases Ethanol and Biofuels Outlook to 2015

    The challenges facing the ethanol industry are multifaceted.  U.S. ethanol production is approaching ever closer to an E10 "blend wall," and the adoption of higher E15 blends is likely to occur slowly.  The main federal incentive for ethanol expires at the end of the year, along with the tariff on foreign ethanol, and extensions of some form of incentive and tariff are likely to be at ...

  • India should consider new-generation biofuels

    Sustainable biofuel production strategies and second-generation options involving woody biomass and tall grasses that do not need additional land can help India realise its green targets, a review says. India needs to minimise any adverse impact and promote potential synergies with respect to reclamation of degraded lands, creation of rural livelihoods and promotion of energy security, the review ...

  • The Indirect Land Use Change Impact of Biofuels – IEEP Launches Analysis of EU Nations Projected Use of Biofuels and their Consequences

    A new IEEP report analyses the indirect land use change (ILUC) impact of the substantial additional biofuel usage that will be generated up to 2020 by the targets under the EU renewable energy Directive. Plans from national governments setting out how they will reach these targets, which are only now becoming available, confirm that conventional biofuels will be the primary technology used in ...

  • Biofuel carbon footprint not as big as feared, Michigan State University research says

    Publications ranging from the journal Science to Time magazine have blasted biofuels for significantly contributing to greenhouse gas emissions, calling into question the environmental benefits of making fuel from plant material. But a new analysis by Michigan State University scientists says these dire predictions are based on a set of assumptions that may not be correct. 'Greenhouse gas release ...

  • PNNL to receive US$14M in ARRA funds for biofuels research

    The Department of Energy's Pacific Northwest National Laboratory will receive about US$14.2 million for its role in two biofuels research consortia announced today by Energy Secretary Steven Chu. The consortia will advance the science and technology needed to remove hurdles and accelerate the ability to convert plants and other biological material into biofuels that can be used in existing ...

  • Member state biofuel plans will cause higher emissions than fossil fuels

    The use of biofuels in EU transport will emit between 81% and 167% more greenhouse gases than fossil fuels and require an area twice the size of Belgium in new land to grow biofuel crops. That is the latest evidence concerning the environmental impact of biofuels, which was published earlier this month. As the findings are based on EU member states’ plans for increasing use of biofuels and ...

  • Single, key gene discovery could streamline production of biofuels

    A team of researchers at the Department of Energy’s BioEnergy Science Center (BESC) have pinpointed the exact, single gene that controls ethanol production capacity in a microorganism. This discovery could be the missing link in developing biomass crops that produce higher concentrations of ethanol at lower costs.   “The Department of Energy relies on the scientific discoveries ...

  • Climate change and health costs of air emissions from biofuels and gasoline

    The report’s erroneous finding that modern corn ethanol actually increases greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions relative to gasoline is completely predicated on the baseless assumption that additional corn demand for increased ethanol production will cause conversion of large amounts of grassland enrolled in the Conservation Reserve Program (CRP). Thus, like several other highly controversial studies ...
