Biodiesel from sewage sludge within pennies a gallon of being competitive


Existing technology can produce biodiesel fuel from municipal sewage sludge that is within a few cents a gallon of being competitive with conventional diesel refined from petroleum, according to an article in ACS' Energy & Fuels. Sludge is the solid material left behind from the treatment of ...


Biofuel chemistry more complex than petroleum, say Sandia and Lawrence Livermore researchers


Understanding the key elements of biofuel combustion is an important step toward insightful selection of next-generation alternative fuels. And that's exactly what researchers at Sandia and Lawrence Livermore national laboratories are doing. The journal Angewandte Chemie devotes its May 10 ...


Process in big-screen plasma TVs can produce ultra-clean fuel


The process that lights up big-screen plasma TV displays is getting a new life in producing ultra-clean fuels, according to a report at the 239th National Meeting of the American Chemical Society (ACS). It described a small, low-tech, inexpensive device called a GlidArc reactor that uses ...


More, better biodiesel


Yields of biodiesel from oilseed crops such as safflower could be increased by up to 24 percent using a new process developed by chemists at UC Davis. The method converts both plant oils and carbohydrates into biodiesel in a single process, and should also improve the performance characteristics ...


BASF to break ground for new sodium methylate plant in Brazil

World-scale plant with a capacity of 60,000 metric tons


BASF broke ground for its new production plant for sodium methylate in Guaratinguetá, Brazil, its largest site in South America. The plant will have a capacity of 60,000 metric tons per year and is primarily intended to supply the regional market. It is the second BASF plant for this product, in ...

Microbes produce fuels directly from biomass


A collaboration led by researchers with the U.S. Department of Energy's Joint BioEnergy Institute (JBEI) has developed a microbe that can produce an advanced biofuel directly from biomass. Deploying the tools of synthetic biology, the JBEI researchers engineered a strain of Escherichia coli ...


Iowa State researchers part of $78 million national effort to develop advanced biofuels


Two teams of Iowa State University researchers will receive a total of $8 million over three years from a $78 million U.S. Department of Energy program to research and develop advanced biofuels. Victor Lin – professor of chemistry, director of the Institute for Physical Research and Technology's ...


Petrobras Biocombustível acquires 50% stake in a Biodiesel Plant in Paraná


Petrobras announced that its Board of Directors has approved the entry of its wholly-owned subsidiary Petrobras Biocombustível S.A. in the joint stock of BSBIOS Marialva Indústria e Comércio de Biodiesel Sul Brasil S.A., with investments worth R$ 55 million , going on to hold 50% of the company´s ...


UT Knoxville and ORNL researchers turn algae into high-temperature hydrogen source

Platinum-catalyzed photosynthetic process creates high-yield sustainable source of hydrogen


In the quest to make hydrogen as a clean alternative fuel source, researchers have been stymied about how to create usable hydrogen that is clean and sustainable without relying on an intensive, high-energy process that outweighs the benefits of not using petroleum to power vehicles. New ...


UGA licenses technology to make fuel from dead forests and agricultural waste


An innovative process for turning waste biomass – such as dead trees, agricultural waste and lumber byproducts – into a liquid fuel to power conventional engines has been licensed by the University of Georgia Research Foundation, Inc. to Tolero Energy, LLC, a private biofuels company based in ...
