IFR The bright yellow fields of oilseed rape are a familiar sight at this time of year, but for scientists what lies beneath is just as exciting. Researchers at the Institute of Food Research are looking at how to turn straw from oilseed rape into biofuel. Preliminary findings are pointing at ways the process could be made more efficient, as well as how the straw itself could be improved. Straw from crops such as wheat, barley, oats and oilseed rape is seen as a potential source of...

The market potential of the four products analysed in a new Market Insight is over $130 billion LONDON, May 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Long considered a waste product of the pulping industry, lignin, a major component of biomass, is currently being used for low and medium-value applications (e.g. binding and dispersing agents), representing a market of $730 million. However, according to Frost & Sullivan, strong signals indicate that lignin could be set to address high-value opportunities as...

New Technique Could Drive Down Cost Of Biofuel Production
2014-01-07 11:52:27

North Carolina State University Researchers at North Carolina State University have developed a simple, effective and relatively inexpensive technique for removing lignin from the plant material used to make biofuels, which may drive down the cost of biofuel production. Lignin, nature’s way of protecting plant cell walls, is difficult to break down or remove from plant materials called “biomass,” such as the non-edible parts of the corn plant. However, that lignin needs to be...

But work still needs to be done The results of a field trial with genetically modified poplar trees in Zwijnaarde, Belgium, shows that the wood of lignin modified poplar trees can be converted into sugars in a more efficient way. These sugars can serve as the starting material for producing bio-based products like bio-plastics and bio-ethanol. The results of the field trial have been published in a scientific article in which the results of a field trial of French colleagues of the INRA...
