New Platform Speeds up Effort to Turn Crops into Fuel

by Scott Lyon (Princeton School of Engineering and Applied Science) Princeton researchers have developed a new way to make fuel from cellulose — Earth’s most abundant organic compound, found in all plant cells — speeding up a notoriously slow chemical process and in some cases doubling energy yields over comparable methods.

Biofuels Offer a Cost-Effective Way to Lower Shipping Emissions

(Argonne National Laboratory/Tech Xplore)  Marine shipping traffic has grown steadily over the past decade—and so have the associated greenhouse gas emissions. Carbon emissions from ships grew almost 10% between 2012 and 2018, and the industry is a large consumer of petroleum fuel. Substituting biofuel could reduce the amount of greenhouse
