  • New technique to lower cost of advanced biofuels

    22.07.2014 kindly supported by Enviro Finland

    Swiss scientists have developed a method for streamlining advanced biofuel production. Instead of using genetic engineering to create superior micro-organisms that enhance fermentation, they have managed to achieve analogous results purely through chemical engineering. Yields are around 80 percent converting pure cellulose into ethanol. The researchers anticipate that the new process will be compatible with existing facilities and aim within 3-5 years to establish an industrial pilot. Read more
