Saudi researchers find biofuels could significantly reduce NOx and other GHGs

Saudi researchers find biofuels could significantly reduce NOx and other GHGs

August 15, 2018 |

In Saudi Arabia, switching to renewable fuels could significantly lower exhaust emissions of toxic nitrogen oxides (NOx) as well as curbing global greenhouse gas emissions. Researchers at the King Abdullah University of Science & Technology (KAUST) have combined computer analysis with laser-based NOx concentration measurements to understand NOx production pathways in different fuel types. The […]

Radboud University study shows location of biofuels crop impacts GHGs

May 19, 2015 |

In the Netherlands, corn, wheat and rapeseed can be used to produce biofuels, such as bioethanol and biodiesel. According to recent findings by environmental scientists at Radboud University, the location of the agricultural lands used to grow these biofuel crops has a major impact on the greenhouse gas emission they ultimately produce. The study that […]
