NREL recycles biorefinery waste streams to create high-value chemical products

November 15, 2020 |

In Colorado, National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) researchers, with funding support from the U.S. Department of Energy’s Bioenergy Technologies Office (BETO), developed a method to isolate organic compounds, specifically the monomers which are precursors to everyday materials like plastics, out of biorefinery aqueous waste. The NREL team addressed the thermochemical conversion strategy of catalytic fast […]
