  • 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 ...

  • New analysis of energy and environmental performance of biofuels

    New research identifies important influences on the energy and environmental performance of biofuels made from agricultural crops. Type of land use change, type of biofuel crop and the by-products from the conversion process all influence performance. The benefits of introducing biofuels in the transport sector or as feedstock in the chemical industry are widely debated. Research has produced ...

  • 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 ...

  • New reports cast doubt over biofuel policy

    Two separate reports reviewing the indirect land use change (ILUC) impacts of biofuel crops have stressed the importance of factoring ILUC impacts into biofuel policies to ensure use of biofuels do not result in higher greenhouse gas emissions (GhG) than their fossil fuel alternatives. The Department for Transport (DfT) commissioned E4Tech to study the impacts of five biofuel streams which are ...

  • 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 ...

  • Five Energy Department Accomplishments in Algal Biofuels

    Algae are an attractive biofuel feedstock because they grow fast, absorb carbon dioxide, and can utilize waste resources, such as municipal waste water. Algae store energy from sunlight and can then be converted to advanced hydrocarbon fuel and used as a direct replacement for petroleum fuel. However, the ...
