ANL study shows biofuels offer cost-effective way to lower shipping emissions

ANL study shows biofuels offer cost-effective way to lower shipping emissions

October 3, 2021 |

In Illinois, Argonne National Laboratory researchers, funded by DOE’s Bioenergy Technologies Office and DOT’s Maritime Administration, showed through a new study that biofuels can significantly reduce shipping emissions – between 40 and 93 percent when compared to conventional heavy fuel oil – while remaining cost-effective. The study used publicly available datasets in ANL’s Greenhouse gases, […]

Argonne GREET 2018 update

Argonne GREET 2018 update

October 11, 2018 |

In Illinois, a research team at Argonne National Lab released its GREET 2018 update. GREET is a life-cycle analysis (LCA) tool, structured to systematically examine energy and environmental effects of a wide variety of transportation fuels and vehicle technologies in major transportation sectors (i.e., road, air, marine, and rail). There are two GREET modeling platforms; […]

Argonne researchers develop landscape approach to reduce bioenergy environmental impacts

Argonne researchers develop landscape approach to reduce bioenergy environmental impacts

August 27, 2015 |

In Illinois, researchers at Argonne National Laboratory developed an approach to design such landscapes at a field scale to minimize concerns of land use change, water quality, and greenhouse gas emissions associated with production of food and bioenergy. This study leverages concepts of nutrient recovery and phytoremediation to place bioenergy crops on the landscape to […]

Argonne National Lab says crop residue use making land management trickier

Argonne National Lab says crop residue use making land management trickier

May 26, 2015 |

In Illinois, the handling of agricultural crop residues appears to have a large impact on soil’s ability to retain carbon, making land management practices increasingly important, especially under a scenario where cellulosic materials become more heavily used as a feedstock for ethanol production, according to a recently published study led by researchers at the U.S. […]
