A new enzyme — capable of aiding in the cost-effective conversion of woody-waste into liquid fuel — was recently discovered during research on the tiny marine wood-borers known as ‘gribble’.
Great ideas abound for new feedstocks, and novel infrastructure. We admire so many of them. Jatropha, carinata, switchgrass, sweet sorghum, blender pumps, systems-at-sea. And so much more.

The energy balances show that 0.78 million Btu (MBtu) and 1.13 MBtu of fossil fuels are consumed in the overall WTW lifecycles of corn ethanol and petroleum gasoline respectively (for every 1.0 MBtu of finished motor fuel produced-delivered).
uh... yes. that's correct. It is a generator that breaks down the urea, yeilding hydrogen which is then purified and burned.
A Kior plant in Mississippi will start shipping fuel made from wood chips as planned as it chases large-scale production.
$122 million innovation hub could speed the development of devices for making fuel from water and sunlight.
Call it “The little engine that curd.” Students at Utah State University have broken a land speed record in a car fueled by the waste that remains from cheese making.
Call it "fuel without fossils": Jonathan Trent is working on a plan to grow new biofuel by farming micro-algae in floating offshore pods that eat wastewater from cities.
As the world’s biggest exporter of corn diverts more and more of its crop to make fuel, it’s sending less to the global marketplace.
New data show that its products cost more than $30 a gallon to make.

Scientists have been trying for a while now to recreate the process of photosynthesis, using sunlight and water to spark chemical reactions.
Reports from the WTO and USDA show that corn supplies are influenced by biofuel subsidies and mandates.
"This oil spill, whether sabotage, negligence, accident or design is the perfect way to advance this biofuel agenda. They will sacrifice the Gulf and all who live in or around it for this multi-trillion dollar industry."
he carbohydrates from the lignin. By exposing the plant matter to gaseous ozone, with very little moisture, they are able to produce a carbohydrate-rich solid with no solid or liquid waste. "This is more efficient because it degrades the lignin v
Bacteria that can convert electricity into methane could help solve one of the biggest problems with renewable energy – its unreliability compared to the steady output of polluting fossil-fuel power stations.
An Arizona shrimp farmer has emptied the crustaceans from some of his ponds and filled them instead with algae to turn to biofuel.
