Biodiesel won't drive down global warming

EU legislation to promote the uptake of biodiesel will not make any difference to global warming, an...n to combustion in cars. The results show that biodiesel derived from rapeseed grown on dedicated farmland emits nearly the same amount of greenhouse gas emi...

With cellulosic ethanol, there is no food vs. fuel debate according to MSU scientist

...y of producing biofuels ?fuels such as ethanol and biodiesel that are made from renewable resources. Dale will present his findings today at the American Chemical Society annual meeting in Chicago. "We grow animal feed, not human food in the United States," Dale said.

U of M researchers invent 'flashy' new process to turn soy oil, glucose into hydrogen

...urrently, the key step in conversion of the oil to biodiesel requires the addition of methanol, a fossil fuel. The new process skips the biodiesel step and turns oil straight into hydrogen and carbon monoxide gases by heating it to about 1,000 deg...

Iowa State researchers improving plastics made from corn and soy proteins

...when researchers add some glycerin ?a byproduct of biodiesel production ?and some water to the molecule. And that's how biorenewable, biodegradable plastics can be made from the proteins in Iowa crops. But those aren't the strongest plastics. So Grewell is working with a team of Iowa State researchers to re...

Hybrid grass may prove to be valuable fuel source

...In contrast, the ratios exceed 0.8 for ethanol and biodiesel from canola, which are other plant-derived energy sources. Besides being a clean, efficient and renewable fuel source, Miscanthus also is remarkably easy to grow. Upon reaching maturity, Miscanthus has few needs as it outgrows weeds, requires little...
