Important Biofuel Companies You Need To Know About

Over the last decade, major league companies and countries have poured billions of dollars into biofuel research. Yet, we don’t actually see them getting filled up in our cars. The idea behind biofuels is that we use organic matter like straw or sugarcane and turn it into liquid fuel. And this is the first step to achieve carbon neutral, which produces zero net emissions. So, there has been constant research…

Chhattisgarh Has All It Takes To Become A Biofuel Hub

Chhattisgarh Has All It Takes To Become A Biofuel Hub [caption id="attachment_1331" align="alignright" width="256"] Nitin Gadkari, the Union Road Transport Minister.[/caption] In the last decade, many countries have either stepped up their biofuel production or utilization. Between 2016 and 2017, America became the largest biofuel producer in the world. More recently, Australia began blending biofuel with traditional fuel to power their airlines. Addressing a gathering in Charoda recently, Nitin Gadkari,…

Biofuel Trial: Australia Edging Towards Sustainable Aviation

[caption id="attachment_1323" align="alignright" width="256"] Brisbane Airport[/caption] Researchers are continually making efforts to increase the production of biofuel and ease the pressure on non-renewable sources of fuel. In a recent study, researchers developed nanocatalyst that will ensure continuous biofuel production. Australia has taken a huge step towards sustainable aviation after a trial proved that biofuel can be supplied to Brisbane Airport through the regular fuel system. The trial was conducted using…

Nanocatalyst Developed By Chemists Ensures Continuous Biofuel Synthesis

[caption id="attachment_1313" align="alignright" width="256"] University of RUDN[/caption] Dealing with biological systems is not easy because they can be affected by different environmental factors like temperature, pressure, and pH. The buildup of microbial metabolites is usually the cause of a change in pH. Keeping the fermentation conditions fairly stable for optimal yield has remained one of the greatest challenges that scientist has to deal with. There seems to be a light…

Engineers Studying The Use Of Microbes For Biofuel Production

[caption id="attachment_1306" align="alignright" width="256"] Scientists have to remove some of the bottlenecks in microbial metabolic pathways.[/caption] The by-products of many microbes have turned around to become useful products used by man as fuels, part of synthetic chemicals, drugs, and polymers. For example, anaerobic fermentation of some bacterial species yields biogas. The renewed interest in renewable transportation biofuels has prompted increased research focused on using microbial systems for biofuel production. The…
