EU-funded project develops nanocatalysts for biofuel production

April 25, 2018 |

In Germany, an EU project developed innovative nanocatalysts to create an integrated modular and highly efficient process for producing fuels from renewable energy sources. Fifteen partners across eight countries joined efforts in the EU-funded project BIOGO-FOR-PRODUCTION to radically transform production processes and realize these essential improvements. The project focused on developing an integrated, coherent and […]

Malaysian researchers develop algae biodiesel using nanocatalysts

July 7, 2016 |

In Malaysia, researchers from the Universiti Putra Malaysia have developed a methodology to produce biodiesel from algae using nanocatalysts and synthesized through a calcination–hydration–dehydration technique. The nano-CaO catalysis impact was investigated in a two-step transesterification of triglycerides from crude Jatropha oil as a biodiesel along with other reaction parameters such as catalyst ratio, reaction time, […]
