Millions of CDM credits could be generated after the approval of a biodiesel/biofuel/bioenergy methodology.

This is about the most progressive CDM move for the past several years and for such a simple ideology it has taken many hours of debate, cajoling, table bashing and even flared tempers to get approval. The methodology implies land assessment partnerships with the CDM consultants within national offices, National and Regional land offices (Departments responsible for primary land assessment and recommendations for land us), local community partnerships and above all a clear value chain for… Continue

BTL-Bio Jet Fuel + CHP+++, Special Economic Developement Zone Development in the Sub Tropical Regions.

Johann Gutenburg's contribution to the world is frequently touted as his invention of the printing press. The truth is that Gutemburg did not invent a single element of the press, he invented nothing. His brilliance, product design from a synergy of inventions.

Earlier this year, before the ink could dry on a low media profile set of papers, certification of a Bio Jet… Continue

Biofuels and ecoagriculture: can bioenergy production enhance landscape-scale ecosystem conservation and rural livelihoods?

Global development of the biofuel sector is proceeding rapidly, driven by national policy mandates, government subsidies, and profit opportunities for farmers, agribusiness and energy companies. To date, most investment in - and dialogue on - biofuels has focused on large-scale production of liquid transport fuels. A smaller set of efforts has explored the potential of biofuels to promote rural development by reducing energy poverty among the world's two billion poorest people. Here, we… Continue

Biomass Conversions to Liquid Fuels via BTL Processes

Biomass to Liquids (BTL) processes are being designed based on the thermo-chemical platform for converting biomass to biofuels. In an indirect liquefaction process, synthesis gas (syn-gas, CO+H2) is first produced via gasification of solid biomass or liquid bio-oil produced by the fast pyrolysis of biomass. Syn-gas can be converted to synthetic gasoline, jet-fuel or diesel using Fischer-Tropsch synthesis of hydrocarbons or synthetic alcohols, such as ethanol, through different catalytic… Continue
