NREL’s new nitrides could prove useful for many applications

June 22, 2019 |

In Washington, D.C., scientists at NREL; Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL); University of Colorado, Boulder (CU); and other partner institutions around the country created a large stability map of the ternary nitrides, highlighting nitride compositions where experimental discovery is promising, and other compositions where nitride formation would be unlikely. For chemists attempting to create new […]

LBNL tips its Hot 5 technologies

June 17, 2013 |

In California, the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory highlighted five technologies now available for license. They include: Improving Saccharification Efficiency by Inhibiting a Xylosyltransferase, a technology that increases soluble sugar extraction notably compared to wild type plants, offering a pathway to more efficient saccharification in bioenergy plants. Strengthening Bioenergy Feedstock Plants by Overexpression of Three Rice […]

Saving biofuels' magic bugs from their own toxins

Saving biofuels' magic bugs from their own toxins

[ 2 ] May 13, 2011 |

In California, the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory announced that Joint BioEnergy Institute  researchers have found a way to help microbes survive the toxicity caused by the very compounds that they secrete in order to produce biofuels.  Many of the best candidate compounds for advanced biofuels are toxic to microbes, which presents a “production versus survival” […]
