Queensland researcher looking to produce biofuels from bagasse for US Navy

August 24, 2015 |

In Australia, a researcher from Queensland University of Technology is working to develop technology to turn sugarcane bagasse into aviation and other fuels under a $4.5 million grant from the Federal Government. The target market is the US Navy who is seeking biofuel filling stations in Australia to supply its green fleet. Already Queenland ports are used in training exercises for the US Navy and would be a logical region to produce the fuels for helicopters, planes and vessels. Sorghum is another potential feedstock for fuels to supply the US Navy.
