Kansas State University civil engineers are developing the right mix to reduce concrete's carbon footprint and make it stronger. Their innovative ingredient: biofuel byproducts. "The idea is to use bioethanol production byproducts to produce a material to use in concrete as a partial replacement of cement," said Feraidon Ataie, doctoral student in civil engineering, Kabul, Afghanistan. "By using these materials we can reduce the carbon footprint of concrete materials." Concrete is made...

A U.S. study indicates it takes more than efficient equipment to make renewable energies cost-effective, with technological advances essential to the effort. The research, led by Richard Hess of the Idaho National Laboratory, is a cost-analysis of the steps involved in the corn stover supply chain. Corn stover consists of the stalks, leaves and cobs that remain after corn is harvested. The United States is increasing the use of lignocellulosic biomass, of which corn stover is a substantial...
