Biofuel engineers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison say they have transformed plant sugar into a liquid fuel with 40% more energy than ethanol. Chemical and biological engineering professor James Dumesic and his research team describe in a recent issue of the journal Nature a 2-stage process for turning biomass-derived sugar into 2,5-dimethylfuran (DMF), a liquid transportation fuel with 40% greater energy density than ethanol. The university says in a statement that by chemically ...
