  • University of Georgia Creates New Biofuel from Trees

    Athens, Georgia – A team of University of Georgia researchers has developed a new biofuel derived from wood chips. Unlike previous fuels derived from wood, the new and still unnamed fuel can be blended with biodiesel and petroleum diesel to power conventional engines. 'The exciting thing about our method is that it is very easy to do,' said Tom Adams, director of the UGA Faculty of Engineering ...

  • Grass Is Greener For Biofuels Future

    A genetically-engineered bacterium developed by scientists in the US can produce ethanol biofuel from coarse, wild-growing switchgrass, rather than using vital food crops such as maize. Scientists in the US claim they have developed a simple, one-step process that turns plant tissue into biofuel. A genetically-engineered bacterium can convert switchgrass into ethanol directly, without any ...

  • An economical method of biofuel production

    Fuels made from plant materials could play a role in the move to more sustainable energy production. A new costing study suggests that large-scale biomass-to-liquid (BTL) plants, could manufacture such synthetic fuels ('biosynfuel') at a cost of about 1 Euro per kg in central Europe. Under the EU Climate Action and Renewable Energy package1, Member States need to source a minimum of 10 per cent ...
