Biofuels Overview

The terms “biofuels” and “renewable biofuels” refer to a fuel produced by some biological process like agriculture or anaerobic digestion, as opposed to fossil fuels (coal and petroleum) which are produced through a geological process which come from prehistoric biological matter. After years of research and development, many biofuels now exist. They are normally classified…

Maritime Use of Renewable Fuels

Marine renewable fuels are beginning to attract a great deal of attention just like sustainable aviation fuel has done. Why is that?  Much of the world’s oil supply contains about one-half percent of sulfur, which is known to cause respiratory and heart problems.  For many years, price conscious ocean going vessels have been using the…

Lignins

Lignins are natural polymers that give the cell walls of plants their strength, have been called some nasty names: an “ugly, unwieldy molecule,” ornery, tough, and uncooperative.  But lignin experts say the unloved, but abundant, substance, is coming into its own as a sustainable and effective alternative to fossil fuels. The second most abundant polymer in…

Lignin Consultant

Lignin consultants are often in high demand as ligins constitute about 30% of the non-fossil carbon available from biomass.  It is a coproduct of both woody and agricultural wastes.   Currently, most of the lignin collected is burned as fuel for boilers and fired heaters.   Finding ways for increasing its value is critical to the economy…
