Thailand to use UC Riverside biofuel technology
Source : domesticfuel.com
A national laboratory in Thailand has signed an agreement that will allow them to produce biofuels using the University of California, Riverside's process to convert biomass and agricultural wastes into fuel. The project is a collaboration between the UC Riverside Bourns College of Engineering and the Thailand Institute of Scientific and Technological Research. The work will focus on utilizing steam hydro gasification as a means to convert the biomass into fuel. This is a thermal chemical process that turns carbon-based materials into "drop-in" fuels such as gasoline, diesel and jet fuel. "It's really an exciting project because Thailand is showcasing the UCR technology", said Joseph Norbeck, a professor emeritus at UC Riverside. "It's a showcase for all of Asia."
