Lignocellulosic biomass (dry plant matter) is the most abundant raw material for the production of biofuels and many experts hope that a large proportion of transportation fuels can be replaced with biofuels. Thermochemical technologies for biomass conversion such as fast pyrolysis can produce bot..
Researchers at the Division of Nanotechnology and Functional Materials, Uppsala University have developed a paper filter that can remove virus particles with an efficiency matching that of the best industrial virus filters. The paper filter consists of 100 percent high purity cellulose n..
Formaldehyde protects and serves
The lignin found in plants is a desirable renewable feedstock for fuels and other useful compounds. Breaking down such a strong, energy-dense polymer, however, requires pretreatment of plant biomass under harsh conditions. These pretreatment steps often cause side..
