The Venus Technology: Algae joins wood at the Liquefaction and supercritical frontier for biofuels

The Venus Technology: Algae joins wood at the Liquefaction and supercritical frontier for biofuels

December 23, 2013 |

PNNL develops a project that, using conditions usually found on the planet Venus, produces a continuous stream of drop-in advanced biofuels, from algae, with the potential for dramatically lowered costs. It’s another step forward in the subcritical temperature region — and may solve the algae dewatering and extraction problems forever. If Venus has not been […]

Extreme energy, supercritical water, nanostuff and biofuels

Extreme energy, supercritical water, nanostuff and biofuels

November 5, 2013 |

At the frontier of exotic temperature and pressures, even everyday materials like water begin to act strangely in ways that can drive energy transformation. New work in nanocatalysts may make those frontiers more accessible, and those energy systems more affordable. OK – try this one for size.  Water ice that checks in at 1300 degrees […]

Low-energy pyrolysis using supercritical CO2: new research

Low-energy pyrolysis using supercritical CO2: new research

[ 0 ] February 23, 2011 |

In the UK, a leading researcher at the University of York has developed a low-temperature microwave pyrolysis of biomass using supercritical carbon dioxide to produce wax products without solvents residues. It allows a more precise control over the heating process, and saves energy, too. An advantage of using the technology is also the quality of […]

Another Wonder Down Under: Ignite Energy develops low-cost biomass conversion using supercritical water

[ 0 ] December 27, 2010 |

Supercritical fluids have been part of the biofuels technology mix for a long time. we’ve seen them researched for producing algal biofuels without dewatering, as a superior corn oil extraction system. Back in 2008, a team from Saskachewan and India signed a research deal using supercritical CO2 to extract fermentable sugars from biomass. What is […]
