Biofuel production from oilseed is the future

Straw from crops such as wheat, barley, and oats is seen as a potential source of biomass for second generation biofuel production. With new findings, scientists have now come closer to making the production more efficient.

Scientists find way to reduce biofuel production costs

US researchers have made a ground-breaking discovery in , researchers have crossed one of the largest barriers to produce cost-effective biofuels.

Modified yeast to boost biofuel production

A team of scientists has worked out how to modify yeast cells so that they successfully convert a wider range of sugars from plant waste such as wheat and rice straw into alcohol that can be used as biofuel.

BP signs deal with US firm to develop biofuel production

British oil giant BP said Tuesday that it has signed a deal with US group Martek Biosciences to further develop biofuel production using sugar.
