Purdue University researchers are launching a company, Spero Energy Inc., focusing on an innovative process that could revolutionize how lignocellulosic biomass is used to make biofuels and other bio-based products and chemicals.
A unique bioreactor at the Energy Department's National Renewable Energy Laboratory can help find the ideal locations for farms to produce algae that could someday compete with renewable diesel, cellulosic ethanol, and other petroleum alternatives.
The U.S. EPA has published renewable identification number (RIN) data for January, reporting the first generation of cellulosic ethanol RINs since 2012. Cellulosic RINs were generated last year, but those RINs were for drop-in gasoline and diesel.
Sweetwater Energy and Pacific Ethanol (Nasdaq: PEIX) announced an agreement to supply customized industrial sugars for the production of cellulosic ethanol. The agreement supports the construction of a cellulosic biorefinery at the Pacific Ethanol...
Could weeds, particularly problematic invasive ones, become a reliable cellulosic ethanol feedstock? It isn't likely in the near-term due to a fundamental dilemma, suggest a group of University of Illinois researchers.
I remember the conversation well. It was late summer in 2008 and the price of crude oil had exploded above $100 per barrel. I was having lunch in mid-town Manhattan with a Bloomberg energy reporter, Bryan Wingfield. I had just begun reading about...
Beta Renewable and Novozymes today marked the official opening in Northern Italy of the world's largest advanced biofuels facility. The plant uses wheat straw, rice straw and arundo donax as feedstock to produce cellulosic ethanol.
