NREL’s Catalyst Property Database can accelerate biofuels research

January 16, 2022 |

In Washington, D.C., National Renewable Energy Laboratory researchers developed a public, online library of catalyst data, the Catalyst Property Database, which could be fertile ground for breakthroughs in catalytic technologies needed to turn renewable biomass or waste materials into sustainable transportation fuels and here are 3 ways the CPD can accelerate biofuels research.

The tool adds to a robust portfolio of capabilities offered by the Chemical Catalysis for Bioenergy Consortium (ChemCatBio). ChemCatBio works to decarbonize the economy by accelerating the development of catalytic technologies that convert biomass and waste resources into renewable fuels and chemicals.

The CPD advances that mission by making it faster and cheaper to identify the right catalyst formula for specific biofuel production processes. Officially open to external uploads in September 2021, the CPD stands to accelerate biofuels research even more.
