Process Automation Insights: Overcoming Challenges in the Biofuels Industry
In recent years, efforts to use renewable alternatives like biofuels to reduce carbon emissions in the transportation industry have risen. What are some of the challenges this industry is currently facing, and how do automation and technology solutions contribute to overcoming them?
Prof David Bressler of the University of Alberta talks about his research goals: developing a technology that can convert oils and fats directly to hydrocarbon fuels. An area with clear benefits towards sustainable energy models in our world.
Neste’s Sustainable Aviation Fuel meets all the performance and quality requirements of fossil kerosine but is produced from 100% renewable waste and residue raw materials. Flying on Neste MY Sustainable Aviation Fuel reduces Greenhouse Gas Emissions by up to 80% on a lifecycle basis compared to fossil jet fuel.
We need to reduce transport emissions and we need to reduce the amount of waste that cannot be recycled. What if each of these problems was actually the solution to the other? We call it called Waste-to-Wheels. Neste creates solutions for combating climate change and accelerating a shift to a circular economy. We refine waste, residues and innovative raw materials into renewable fuels and sustainable feedstock for plastics and other materials. Learn more: https://www.neste.com
Transport is one of the main sources of greenhouse gas emissions. We need to reduce the amount of fossil fuels we use. Fast. This video outlines the potential of electric vehicles and the crucial role of renewable fuels in tackling transport emissions.
To tackle climate change, we need to reduce the amount of fossil fuels we use. Fast. The question is: how? Electric mobility will help but we will need to combine all solutions to substantially reduce emissions. Renewable fuels can play a key role and could replace up to 40% of all fossil fuels used in transport today by 2040.
Cytiva wants your help to recycle syringe filters! They are the first in the industry to recycle syringe filters with TerraCycle and are proud to be leading the way.
As part of the BIO4A project, SkyNRG will provide its valuable expertise in the sector to make BIO4A mission a reality: enabling the large-scale pre-commercial production of ASTM-certified SAF in the European Union. In this short interview, Oskar tells us how sustainable aviation fuel is making its way in the aviation sector, from fuel sourcing to airport delivery.
University of Michigan scientists grew various combinations of freshwater algal species in 80 artificial ponds at U-M's E.S. George Reserve near Pinckney, Michigan in the first large-scale, controlled experiment to test the widely held idea that biodiversity can improve the performance of algal biofuel systems in the field.
Lurking in the sewers beneath the streets there are giant blobs of congealed cooking fat known as "fatbergs". Now one company has come up with a clever way of making money out of them. Their efforts may one day change perceptions of fatbergs - turning the lumps of putrid waste into a valuable commodity.
Welcome to the world of biofuels. UPM is driven by finding solutions that lead the way beyond fossil fuels.
