NREL, PNNL and ANL find ways to reduce costs of biofuel production

January 9, 2019 |

In Colorado, Researchers from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL), and Argonne National Laboratory (ANL) have identified an approach to improve the efficiency and reduce costs of biofuel production that moves beyond conventional strategies.

A culmination of years of catalyst development research, “Driving towards cost-competitive biofuels through catalytic fast pyrolysis by rethinking catalyst selection and reactor configuration,” was published in Energy and Environmental Science and details the catalytic fast pyrolysis (CFP) process in which researchers modified catalyst composition and reactor configuration to boost bio-oil yields.
