A novel biofuel system for hydrogen production from biomass

A novel biofuel system for hydrogen production from biomass

March 22, 2020 |

In South Korea, a research team at Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology, or UNIST, has presented a new biofuel system that uses lignin found in biomass for the production of hydrogen. The system decomposes lignin with a molybdenum (Mo) catalyst to produce high value-added compounds, and the electrons extracted in the process effectively […]

In South Korea, a research team from the School of Energy and Chemical Engineering at UNIST unveiled a novel biomass conversion technology, a fusion catalytic system that can selectively convert lignin, that can turn forestry biomass residues (i.e., sawdust from timber logging) into higher value fuels and chemicals via solar energy. At present, the process […]

South Korean researchers develop new way to produce biofuel from CO2

November 24, 2016 |

In South Korea, researchers at UNIST uncovered new ways to make biofuel from carbon dioxide (CO2), the most troublesome greenhouse gas. In their paper published in the journal Applied Catalysis B: Environmental, the team presented direct CO2 conversion to liquid transportation fuels by reacting with renewable hydrogen (H2) generated by solar water splitting. The currently […]
