ICL researchers develop new membrane-based system for cheap, efficiently made biofuels

Green Car Congress

Researchers at Imperial College London have developed a membrane-based extraction system for the production of biofuels which uses less than 25% of the energy of current processes and produces ten times more biofuel with more than 99.5% purity. The open-access findings are published in the RSC journal Energy & Environmental Science. Widespread use of biofuels is inhibited by the significant energy burden of recovering fuel products from aqueous fermentation systems.
