  • Fuel from fuel: converting biodiesel waste into ethanol

    Researchers have discovered that under the correct conditions, glycerol, a major by-product of biodiesel production, can be turned into ethanol by harmless strains of the bacterium Escherichia coli. Furthermore, yields of ethanol obtained from this method are higher than those obtained from conventional means of production. As society looks for alternative sources of energy to replace the use of ...

  • Invest in `green` biomass fuels

    With the right policies and investment in research, developing nations can turn their dependence on biomass fuels into a renewable and sustainable energy supply, says Duncan Macqueen.
