Biofuel production from whole Agave plants Disclosure Number 201303016 Technology Summary If the semi-arid (rainfall <31 inches) regions in the western half of the US could be used to grow biomass for conversion to biofuels, additional sources of biofuels needed to displace petroleum could be produced from otherwise unproductive lands. Agave plants are producti…

Fs Spatialmodeling Geographicpatterns Biodiversitybiofuel Spatial Modeling of Geographic Patterns in Biodiversity and Biofuel Production How can the US develop sustainable biomass energy? An important future challenge currently facing the U.S. will be to ensure that bioenergy supplies meet sustainable production standards that include consideration of biodiversity. The future of the biofuel indu…

Microbially Mediated Method for Making Semiconductor Nanoparticles To address the commercial need for bulk production at a reasonable cost, ORNL researchers developed a microbially mediated method for the production of semiconductor nanoparticles. This invention also offers a means of microbial synthesis that yields a purer and more uniform product. Nanoparticles with metal non-oxide composition…
