Green-Fuel: Biomass converted into bio-fuel!

alternative energy tr8aP 11446
Alternative energy might pave the way for a greener and healthier planet. So, diverse measures involving fuel-production via unconventional methods are being devised. Accordingly, researchers at the University of Wisconsin have succeeded in converting raw biomass cellulose into fuel through a two-step formula. First, they split cellulose into 5-hydroxymethylfurfural (HMF) and later, convert it to 2,5-dimethylfuran (DMF), a biofuel with a 9% conversion rate. The researchers made use of corn stock cellulose and pine sawdust. DMF and gasoline have the same energy content and are insoluble in water. So, it is being used as a gasoline additive. Sadly, we’ve the least hint on when it might hit production and how much it will cost. But, the fact that any form of biomass could be exploited is, in itself, inspiring.
