Enhancing biofuel yields from biomass with novel new method

4 agosto 2014

A versatile, relatively non-toxic, and efficient way to convert raw agricultural and forestry residues and other plant matter — known as lignocellulosic biomass, into biofuels and chemicals — has been developed by researchers. The method brings researchers closer to solving the long elusive goal of producing fuels and chemicals from biomass at high enough yields and low enough costs to become a viable alternative or replacement for petroleum-based fuels and chemicals.
