  • Grass Is Greener For Biofuels Future

    A genetically-engineered bacterium developed by scientists in the US can produce ethanol biofuel from coarse, wild-growing switchgrass, rather than using vital food crops such as maize. Scientists in the US claim they have developed a simple, one-step process that turns plant tissue into biofuel. A genetically-engineered bacterium can convert switchgrass into ethanol directly, without any ...

  • Wastepaper could be biofuel source

    Converting waste such as paper and cardboard into biofuel is a neglected option that could provide clean energy, cut the amount of municipal waste and reduce greenhouse gas emissions, researchers say. Around 83 billion litres of ethanol could be produced from waste paper, according to their model. This could replace five per cent of the world's global petrol demand. Moreover, ethanol produced ...

  • Food as fuel - are biofuels to blame?

    The United Nations has accused the US and the European Union of having taken the "criminal path" by contributing to an explosive rise in global food prices through using food crops to produce biofuels. This comes in the wake of skyrocketing prices and plummeting food supplies in the developing world. But many questions remain as to whether biofuels are the root cause of the current world food ...

  • New techniques create butanol, a superior biofuel

    The fuel is butanol; it can be derived from lignocellulosic materials, which are plant biomass parts that range from woody stems and straw to agricultural residues, corn fiber and husks, all containing in large part cellulose and some lignin. Butanol is considered to be a better biofuel than ethanol because it's less corrosive and has a higher caloric value, giving it a higher energy value. Like ...
