Date: 2019-08-02
Englewood, Colorago-headquartered biobutanol and biofuels specialist GEVO Inc. is reporting a partnership with Locus Agricultural Solutions® (LocusAG) to trial a new technology to improve the capture of soil carbon, reduce applied nitrogen fertilizer needs and improve crop yields.

LocusAG's Rhizolizer® line of fresh, non-GMO soil probiotic treatments have been used to treat 40,000 commercial agriculture acres across several crops, with positive results in improving crop productivity, crop quality, vigor and sustainability. Treatments are now being tested on Gevo's 30-acre farm co-located at its Luverne, MN ethanol facility.

According to LocusAG, the treatments have the potential to amplify crop soil carbon sequestration by up to an additional 3 to 6 metric tpy of CO2 equivalents per acre while increasing crop yields and grower profits.

Univ. of Singapore Explores Greener Biofuel Production (R&D)
University of Singapore
Date: 2018-04-09
On April 6, National University of Singapore (NUS) announced that its team of engineers has recently discovered a greener and cheaper technique for biofuel production, using a natural bacterium isolated from mushroom crop residue.

Among various types of biofuels, biobutanol offers a great promise as petrol substitute because of its high energy density and superior properties. Biobutanol can directly replace gasoline in car engines without any modification. However, commercial production of biobutanol has been hampered by the lack of potent microbes capable of converting cellulosic biomass into biofuels. The current technique is costly and also requires complicated chemical pre-treatment. The novel technique developed by the NUS team could potentially be a game-changing technology for cost effective and sustainable biofuel production.

The NUS team discovered that a naturally-occurring bacterium Thermoanaerobacterium thermosaccharolyticum (TG57) isolated from waste generated after harvesting mushrooms, is capable of converting cellulose to biobutanol directly. The team then went on to culture the strain to examine its properties. The microorganisms in the mushroom farming waste are left to evolve naturally for more than two years to obtain the unique TG57 strain.

The research team plans optimize the performance of the TG57 strain and further engineer it to enhance biobutanol ratio and yield using molecular genetic tools.

The team published the findings of the study in the scientific journal Science Advances on 23 March 2018. HERE.

Univ. of Bristol Beer-to-Butanol Process Touted (New Prod & Tech)
University of Bristol
Date: 2018-01-03
In the UK, research chemists at the University of Bristol report they have developed a way to convert ethanol -- an active ingredient found widely in beers and other alcoholic drinks -- into butanol through petrochemical processes using a catalyst to speed up the chemical reaction -- a process similar to those used for refining gasoline. Butanol can be used as a non-corrosive "drop-in" fuel for gasoline engines with little or no engine modifications.

Although the University of Bristol process is currently able to produce a few hundred grams of butanol from beer, researchers predict the fuel can be used on an industrial scale within 5 years.

According to lead researcher Professor Duncan Wass, "Alcoholic drinks are an ideal model for industrial ethanol fermentation broths as ethanol for fuel is essentially made using a brewing process. If our technology works with alcoholic drinks -- especially with beer which is the best model -- then it shows it has the potential to be scaled up to make butanol as a petrol replacement on an industrial scale. However, the point is not for beer to become the main source of transport fuel, but rather for it to offer important lessons learned for the butanol technology to be further developed."

Celtic Renewables Plans Pot-Ale and Draff Biofuel Demo (Int'l)
Celtic Renewables
Date: 2017-12-15
Edinburgh, Scotland-based biofuel start-up Celtic Renewables, a spinout of Edinburgh Napier University, Celtic Renewables Ltd.reports it has secured planning permission for a 500,000 lpy commercial demonstrator biobutanol plant in Grangemouth. The company has also established a new PLC -- Celtic Renewables Grangemouth PLC -- specifically for the project and has launched a funding campaign seeking to raise £5.25 million ($7.25 million) through an ISA eligible investment with Abundance Investment.

The demo plant will produce Biobutanol from draff -- the sugar-rich kernels of barley which are soaked in water to facilitate the fermentation process necessary for whisky production -- and pot ale, the copper-containing yeasty liquid that is left over following distillation. Construction of the demo plant is expected to get under early in 2018.

GCC Algae Biofuel Prospects Market Opportunity, Key Trends 2014-2020 -- Report Available (Ind. Report)
Future Market Insights
Date: 2017-01-09
According to Future Marketinsights' GCC Algae Biofuel Prospects Market Opportunity, Key Trends 2014-2020 report, half of algae's composition by weight is a lipid oil which been targeted to convert into biodiesel and other alternative fuels including biobutanol, bio-gasoline, methane, ethanol, hydrogen derived renewable fuel and jet fuel.

The report finds that algae costs more per unit than other biofuel crops but is claimed to yield 10 to 100 times more fuel per unit area. In 2014, the prices of oil were between US $ 56 to US $ 120 per barrel. The cost of producing micro algal biomass in 2014 was $2.95/kg through photo bioreactors. If the annual biomass production capacity is increased to 1000 tons then the cost will reduce to $1.5/kg for a litre of crude oil.

The extraction of biofuels from algae is largely dependent on organic solvents such as benzene. The companies that are working on innovating algal biofuel technology are Algenol Biofuels Inc., Blue Marble Productions, Solazyme Inc., Sapphire Energy Inc., Diversified Technologies Inc., Origin Oils Inc., Proviron Industries nv, Oilgae and Genifuel Corporation.
