Scientists engineer sugarcane to produce biodiesel, more sugar for ethanol 4.4.2017 Environmental News Network
A multi-institutional team led by the University of Illinois have proven sugarcane can be genetically engineered to produce oil in its leaves and stems for biodiesel production. Surprisingly, the modified sugarcane plants also produced more sugar, which could be used for ethanol production.

Growing A Bioeconomy -- Flanders To Produce Fossil-Free Fuels, Chemicals, And Products 9.11.2016 Green on HuffingtonPost.com
"By 2050, around 50 percent of all chemicals produced will be biobased." --Dr. Wim Soetaert Biodegradable biobased products made without fossil-fuel feedstocks are showcased at the Biobased Europe Pilot Plant in Ghent, Belgium. The products include a laundry liquid and a hand soap made by Ecover, shower gels by Nivea and Sanex, a skin oil by Kneipp, and a window de-icer by Forever, as well as samples of the plant's biodiesel and bioethanol. Ghent, Belgium--A nonprofit public-private partnership called Flanders Biobased Valley (FBBV) and several key allies hope to transform the Flanders region of Belgium into the hub of a new European center of biobased economic activity. More than €500 million has already been invested in the region's bioeconomy. In a biobased economy, fuels and chemicals are produced from plant-derived materials rather than petroleum or other fossil fuels. The term "bioeconomy" encompasses agriculture and forestry-based processors and their products, such as food and paper, as well as ...

Jet Fuel from Algae? 29.1.2015 Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability News - ENN
A common algae commercially grown to make fish food holds promise as a source for both biodiesel and jet fuel, according to a new study published in the journal Energy & Fuels. The researchers, led by Greg O’Neil of Western Washington University and Chris Reddy of Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, exploited an unusual and untapped class of chemical compounds in the algae to synthesize two different fuel products, in parallel, from a single algae.

Does EPA's Proposal to Cut Biodiesel Portend Administration Caving to Big Coal? 21.8.2014 Green on HuffingtonPost.com
Is a recent Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) proposal to cut biodiesel -- an environmentally friendly fuel that burns significantly cleaner than regular diesel made from oil -- a sign that the Obama administration is waving the white flag on reducing greenhouse gas emissions? Just over a year ago, in June 2013, the White House came out with their three-pronged climate change plan. President Obama even said he would use his executive powers to require reductions in the amount of carbon dioxide produced by the nation's power plants, which accounts for roughly one-third of all the domestic greenhouse gas pollution in this country. And it was just two months ago when President Obama was saying that he was willing to bypass Congress and use his authority under the Clean Air Act to work to reduce Greenhouse Gasses. But instead of sticking with their "No Bad Emissions" strategy, we recently saw the White House and the EPA bend to Big Oil. Reuters reported that The Caryle Group and Delta Air Lines, who own ...

Big Oil and Big Corn Square off: Biodiesel and Democrats Lose 14.6.2014 Green on HuffingtonPost.com
Imagine, if you can, that in this polarized, partisan, divided D.C., there were environmentally friendly standards that were so common sense and on-target that Republicans and Democrats across two administrations could agree to them. Now imagine a government agency scrapping those same standards. Not easy, right? But that's exactly what's happening in Washington right now, as the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) prepares to reduce the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS). Until 2014, the Obama Administration always supported raising the RFS, which mandates the amount of biofuels blended into our national fuel supply every year. But now the EPA is proposing keeping the 2013 standards through 2015. The big question here is why. There's been no end to the guesses as to why an agency tasked with protecting the environment (after all, it's right there in the name) would, suddenly and without explanation, work against an environmentally sound law that drew support from George W. Bush and the party that brought ...

Biofuel Production Declines 10.4.2014 Worldwatch Institute
New Worldwatch Institute analysis examines the trends in global biofuel production    Washington, D.C.—In 2012, the combined global production of ethanol and biodiesel fell for the first time since 2000, down 0.4 percent from the figure in 2011. Global ethanol production declined slightly for the second year in a row, to 83.1 billion liters, while biodiesel output rose fractionally, from 22.4 billion liters in 2011 to 22.5 billion liters in 2012. Biodiesel now accounts for over 20 percent of global biofuel production, writes Tom Prugh in the Worldwatch Institute’s latest Vital Signs Online trend ( www.worldwatch.org ). Biofuels are a subset of bio-energy, which is energy derived from biomass (plant and animal matter) and which can range from manually gathered fuelwood and animal dung to industrially processed forms such as ethanol and biodiesel. Biomass can be used directly for heat, turned into biogas to produce electricity, or processed into liquid forms suitable as alternatives or supplements to ...
