  • ReportsnReports - Global Biofuels Industry

    Global Biofuels Industry  Although biofuels are mainly used to replace or supplement the traditional petroleum-based transportation fuels, they can also be deployed to generate heat and electricity. Being an alternative to fossils, biofuels can be applied to existing vehicles with little or no engine ...


  • 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 ...

  • Adding nanoparticles `makes for friendly biofuels`

    Adding 'nanoparticles' improves the ignition of biofuels and makes them emit less toxic fumes, Indian researchers report. The findings that adding alumina nanoparticles helps biofuels and conventional fuels release fewer toxic emissions and smoke when burned in internal combustion engines were published by Ramachandran Bhagavathiammal Anand, associate professor of mechanical engineering at the ...

  • Announcing the Spring Biofuel Congress 2008

    Russian biofuel branch is relatively young, however it has attracted attention of the business, government and NGOs and shows rapid growth. While benefits of the liquid biofuel are being debated by ecologists and NGOs, the perspectives of solid biofuel for private usage and communal services are evident. Presently, according to branch experts, solid biofuel can become the most effective ...

  • Biofuel gasification in unique CHP plant

    IQR Systems has developed a biofuel gasifier for 2-25 MWth production. The gasifier can be implemented in full scale CHP plants and the construction of plant number two is now up and running. The gasification unit that now is being built is going to use various kinds of biomass fuels - with a moisture contents of up to 60%. A similar 14 MW gasification unit is since 2008 ...

  • Calculating carbon payback times for biofuels

    Biofuels can only contribute to reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions if crop production does not lead to further deforestation in tropical regions. New research introduces the concept of ecosystem carbon payback time (ECPT), which can be used to help identify the best means of expanding biofuel production worldwide, without causing unacceptable levels of carbon emissions from crop production. ...

  • Next Generation Biofuels - Market drivers and growth opportunities

    Over 80% of the world’s primary energy supply is currently derived from coal, gas and oil (collectively known as ‘fossil fuels’), which are used to generate electricity, power, energy and heat for industrial, commercial, domestic and transportation purposes. The world’s dependence on crude oil for transportation is particularly marked, with the International Energy Agency (IEA) estimating that ...


  • How will the US produce 36bn gallons of biofuel by 2022?

    The new U.S. Renewable Fuels Standard (RFS), signed into law last month as part of the revised Energy Bill, sets high goals for the U.S. biofuels industry. It calls for the production of 36 billion gallons of biofuels—mainly ethanol and biodiesel—annually by 2022, with 21 billion gallons coming from so-called “advanced biofuels,” which can be produced using a variety of new feedstocks and ...

  • Science article on GHG accounting misses the mark on biofuels

    Biofuels produced from biomass feedstocks (i.e. plant matter) are, by definition, carbon neutral because carbon dioxide tailpipe emissions from the combustion of biofuels are readily absorbed by growing plants. As such, the tailpipe emissions resulting from the use of a gallon of ethanol produced from corn grown on U.S. farmland are negated by the growing of the corn itself. Yet, in a newly ...

  • Biofuels beneficial to human health, says UC Berkeley

    In the recent fervor to quantify the impact of biofuels on greenhouse gas emissions and climate change, the other public health benefits of ethanol have often been overlooked. In ongoing research at the Energy Biosciences Institute (EBI), researchers are finding that “a biofuel eliminating even 10-percent of current gasoline pollutant emissions would have a substantial impact on human health in ...

  • Algae PhotoBioreactor`s convert Carbon to Biofuels

    Engineering designers from fishace technologies in Perth, Western Australia have developed a modular APB (Algae Photo Bioreactor) that can be placed at mine sites and power plant facilities to capture up to 85% of greenhouse gas emissions, blamed for global warming. APB’s captured gases include contaminants such as carbon dioxide and nitrous oxides. CO2 produced from the combustion of carbon ...

  • Waste tea leaves could brew up biofuel

    [ISLAMABAD] Waste tea leaves could be a cheap source of biofuel that does not compromise food security, according to Pakistani scientists. Researchers from the Nanoscience and Catalysis Division at Quaid-i-Azam University used a nanocatalyst, metal nanoparticles that accelerate reactions, to produce biodiesel from used tea leaves. 'The world today is consuming several million tonnes of tea ...
