On July 31, 2020, DOE announced more than $97 million in funding for 33 projects to support research and development (R&D) of high-impact technology to accelerate the U.S. bioeconomy.The aim is for the selected projects to improve the performance and lower the cost and risk of technologies that can be used to produce biopower, biofuels, and bioproducts from biomass and waste resources. Selected projects will address the following R&D areas:
Scale-up of bench applications to reduce scale-up risks for biofuel and bioproduct processes;
Waste-to-energy strategies, including strategies for municipal solid waste; wet wastes, like food and manures; and municipal wastewater treatment;
Cost reduction of algal biofuels by improving carbon efficiency and by employing direct air capture technologies;
Quantification of the economic and environmental benefits associated with growing energy crops, focusing on restoring water quality and soil health;
Development and testing of low-emission, high-efficiency residential wood heaters;
Innovative technologies to manage major forms of urban and suburban waste, with a focus on using plastic waste to make recycled products and using wastes to produce low-cost biopower; and
From an obscure research facility on a forgotten edge of the University of Oklahoma’s North Campus, a professor and his students have begun a journey that someday may lead to the doorstep of Earth’s molten core.
They are targeting a geological stratum known as the “superhot rock zone,” where temperatures approach 800 degrees Fahrenheit. Finding it is not a problem, but the challenge of getting there is so great that some consider it the holy grail of geothermal energy.Forget wind turbines...
In November last year, the fuel company Preem placed an order for Enviro’s recovered pyrolysis oil for use as a raw material in production tests to determine how suitable it is for the production of different biofuels. Since the start of deliveries in early February, Preem has been performing tests of the oil at its facility in Lysekil, Sweden, which had already been granted a permit specifically for conducting production tests of pyrolysis oil.The supplied oil had been recovered from end-of-life tires at...
In the event you own a pyrolysis plant, there are numerous benefits. You might not realize them before you start to take advantage of this device. They are designed to produce byproducts, including charcoal and bio oil. Most of these can be utilized in sold for the highest bidder. When you have an adequate flow of organic material to arrive regularly, you can convert all of this at the profit. If you would like to obtain a brand-new pyrolysis plant of your very own, you can get vendors and pyrolysis machine...
Purchasing a brandname-new pyrolysis reactor might be a substantial investment. Should it be sizable, able to processing 1000s of tons of material, it could be more than six figures or higher. The cost is going to be justified based on the output which is attainable when utilizing these reactors which can be very efficient. The larger they are, the greater material they may process, and you will certainly need to have a large one converting a few of these materials on a regular basis. From plastic to rubber...
Licella welcome today’s announcement by the Australian Labor Party in support of domestic biofuel manufacturing for Defence.
A Labor Government would provide Licella with a $5 million grant towards the development of a Queensland biorefinery to transform sugarcane waste into military spec fuels, including Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF).
This funding would help establish a commercial biorefinery in the Burdekin region of QLD, with Licella’s Australian-developed Cat-HTR™ technology at its core....
