Bionic liquid key to closed loop biofuel refineries
from Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory via Laboratory Equipment
While the powerful solvents known as ionic liquids show great promise for liberating fermentable sugars from lignocellulose and improving the economics of advanced biofuels, an even more promising candidate is on the horizon — bionic liquids. Researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Joint BioEnergy Institute have developed “bionic liquids” from lignin and hemicellulose, two by-products of biofuel production from bio-refineries.
