Biodiesel from Waste and Low-Value Feedstocks: A panel preview

Over the past couple of years the biodiesel industry has trended toward utilizing fewer virgin oils, largely due to economic factors of depending on the more expensive refined materials, and has relied on low-value waste oils such as used cooking oil. Interest in securing and processing even lower-valued materials, such as trap grease and sewer grease, is also on the rise. BBI International's Southeast Biomass Conference & Trade Show, Nov. 2-4 in Atlanta, will feature a panel on this very topic, titled, "Biodiesel from Waste and Low-Value Feedstocks."READ MORE

Researchers look to E. coli for biodiesel

A team of researchers from Rutgers University and Harvard University is working with a well-known microorganism to aid in the production of biodiesel. The research, based on the E. coli microorganism, commonly associated with food poisoning, is being led by Desmond Lun, associate professor of computer science at Rutgers. Lun and his team are working to modify the genetic make-up of the E. coli organism, creating a strain of the bacteria that overproduces fatty acids which can then be used in biodiesel production.READ MORE
