University of Wisconsin-Madison Using a plant-derived chemical, University of Wisconsin-Madison researchers have developed a process for creating a concentrated stream of sugars that's ripe with possibility for biofuels. "With the sugar platform, you have possibilities," says Jeremy Luterbacher, a UW-Madison postdoctoral researcher and the paper's lead author. "You've taken fewer forks down the conversion road, which leaves you with more end destinations, such as cellulosic ethanol and...

Scientists at the University of York have made a significant step in the search to develop effective second generation biofuels. Researchers from the Department of Chemistry at York have discovered a family of enzymes that can degrade hard-to-digest biomass into its constituent sugars. 'First generation' biofuels have already made an impact in the search for renewable and secure energy sources particularly through the generation of bioethanol manufactured from easy-to-digest food sources...

[ Watch The Video: Algae To Bio-Crude In Less Than 60 Minutes ] Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Biofuels scientists have been using algae to generate crude oil for years, but a novel process developed by the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) has the potential to reduce the costs associated with the process, which have been prohibitive thus far. "Cost is the big roadblock for algae-based fuel," said Douglas Elliott, the laboratory fellow who led the...

Cellulose Nanocrystals Are A Possible 'Green' Wonder Material
2013-12-17 09:07:01

Purdue University The same tiny cellulose crystals that give trees and plants their high strength, light weight and resilience, have now been shown to have the stiffness of steel. The nanocrystals might be used to create a new class of biomaterials with wide-ranging applications, such as strengthening construction materials and automotive components. Calculations using precise models based on the atomic structure of cellulose show the crystals have a stiffness of 206 gigapascals,...
