Researchers engineer hardier microbes to improve bioproduction of fuels, chemicals


Busy, productive microbes use enzymes to break down leaves, stalks and other biomass and then convert that material into renewable fuels and chemicals. But some of those enzymes can’t function at the high temperatures or acidity that maintain low operating costs for fermentation processes. A ...

Carbon dioxide reactor makes Martian fuel

A gas station on Mars? Chemical engineers envision the possibilities: “In the next 10 years, we’ll have a lot of startup companies to commercialize this technique”


Engineers at the University of Cincinnati are developing new ways to convert greenhouse gases to fuel to address climate change and get astronauts home from Mars. UC College of Engineering and Applied Science assistant professor Jingjie Wu and his students used a carbon catalyst in a reactor to ...

Engineered E. coli could make carbohydrates, renewable fuel, from CO2

"The key is for a microbe to use formate as its sole carbon source"


Researchers from Newcastle University, UK have engineeredEscherichia coli bacteria to capture carbon dioxide (CO2) using hydrogen gas (H2) to convertit into formic acid. The research,published inApplied and Environmental Microbiologyraises the possibility of converting atmospheric CO2 to ...

CO2-neutral synthetic fuels and products for everyone

INERATEC receives EU funding of 2.5 million euros for its alternative technology to fossil fuels and chemicals


With the support of Steinbeis 2i GmbH, INERATEC has submitted a successful application for the EIC Accelerator program. The goal of the funded project IMPOWER2X is to scale, multiply and implement our Power-to-X technology to make it available faster and at lower cost. Because CO2-neutral efuels ...

New technology converts waste plastics to jet fuel in an hour

Catalytic process to efficiently convert polyethylene to jet fuel and high-value lubricants


Washington State University researchers have developed an innovative way to convert plastics to ingredients for jet fuel and other valuable products, making it easier and more cost effective to reuse plastics. The researchers in their reaction were able to convert 90% of plastic to jet fuel and ...

'Dominating' fungus could be solution to producing more biofuels and chemicals


The discovery of a novel enzyme that releases a valuable chemical from agricultural waste could provide an important breakthrough in the upscaling of renewable fuels and chemicals, a new study shows. Researchers - led by the University of York - have discovered an enzyme in a fungus which can act ...

New catalyst for lower CO2 emissions

Converting carbon dioxide into other useful substances, such as synthetic fuels


Which catalyst can be used to convert carbon dioxide into other substances? Scientists at TU Wien have now created a new material, which belongs to the class of perovskites. If the CO2 content of the atmosphere is not to increase any further, carbon dioxide must be converted into something else. ...

Adhesives from waste wood, biofuel from straw

EU research project on the potential of agroforestry waste as environmentally friendly raw materials completed


In future, waste from agriculture and forestry could serve as the basis for environmentally friendly building materials, insulation foams or fuels. Over the past four and a half years, an EU project involving the University of Augsburg has explored the potential of such products. The results also ...

Aviation safety: Rapid test for harmful microbes in kerosene developed

Faster and more robust than a PCR test


Fuels such as kerosene or diesel can be contaminated by fungi or bacteria. The microorganisms settle in the liquid itself, on the inner walls of tanks and pipes or in fuel filters and feed on carbon atoms. Since the fungi and bacteria multiply well in this environment, they can form a streaky ...
