Glowing yeast lights the way to better biofuels

Deploying a technique that promises to supercharge the development of biofuels, researchers at Princeton University have found a way to make yeast cultures glow when producing next generation fuels that could power cars and airplanes. The glowing cultures address a major challenge that has slowed biofuel production: developing yeast strains that produce valuable chemicals and […]

Indian refinery to produce bioethanol from bamboo

Sulzer technology is helping to convert bamboo into bioethanol in a pioneering Indian refinery. India’s national objective of achieving self-sufficiency in energy and reducing its fossil fuel footprint is being supported by Sulzer’s expertise in pump manufacturing and refinery processes. The country’s first biorefinery, Assam Bio Refinery, built by Chempolis technology, is a new joint […]

ePURE members produced 5.5 billion litres of ethanol in 2020

European renewable ethanol association (ePURE) members produced 5.57 billion litres of ethanol and 6.16 million tonnes of co-products in 2020, according to new data. The figures showed a significant increase in production of ethanol for industrial use. The new statistics confirm the importance of European renewable ethanol biorefineries to achieving EU Green Deal objectives by […]
