University of Central Florida researchers looking for new potential biofuels for DOE

February 4, 2020 |

In Florida, University of Central Florida researchers are working to narrow the field of potential biofuels as part of a Department of Energy initiative, known as the Co-Optimization of Fuels & Engines.

In some of their latest research, which was published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, the researchers determined that ethanol is the best biofuel when it comes to producing the least amount of soot, a deadly byproduct of combustion.

There are more than 10,000 potential candidates for biofuels, and as a part of this study, the research group was tasked with testing five that the Department of Energy considers some of the most promising.
