Biofuels can replace about 30 percent of fuel needs with significant research and policy effort

...re will need to be significant improvements in how biofuel is processed. Their vision is for a fully integrated biorefinery, which is designed to take advantage of advances in plant science and innovative biomass conversion processes and equipment to produce fuels, power and chemicals from biomass. The bior...

Formation of cellulose fibers tracked for the first time

...e, we are one step closer to designing energy-rich biofuel crops and improved fiber crops." Cellulose fibers make up a significant portion of the dry weight of most plants. Because the fibers can be broken down into the sugar glucose, which can then be converted into ethanol and other biofuels, there are hu...
