16th March – Upgrading Technically Challenging Grass Clippings for Power Generation through Additives Addition – Mubashra Latif

Approximately one third of the world`s population still lacks access to electricity due to the unavailability of fossil fuels locally, the rise in their costs on the international market and the lack of a suitable infrastructure. The utilisation of small-scale biomass downdraft gasification CHP units which are relatively cheap and portable seems a viable option Read more about 16th March – Upgrading Technically Challenging Grass Clippings for Power Generation through Additives Addition – Mubashra Latif[…]

16th July 2018 – Engineering Bio-Fuels of the Future – Nigel Scrutton

Biofuels were once heralded as fuels of the future. But growing biomass for fuel consumes agricultural land and requires energy dependent processing – it fails to deliver. Water borne algae were considered a superior alternative but have failed to deliver commercially attractive solutions. New opportunities are now emerging from the new science of Synthetic Biology Read more about 16th July 2018 – Engineering Bio-Fuels of the Future – Nigel Scrutton[…]
