Research interests

The Advanced Biofuels Lab research team has expertise and interests in bioenergy and CO2 capture/utilization combining catalysis, materials science and chemical engineering aspects. The  team is developing novel catalytic systems for the production of inexpensive renewable liquid fuel and commodity chemicals out of renewable products such as microalgae, wood and organic wastes, in collaboration with international researchers. Also, the team is supporting small and medium-sized enterprises in developing alterative processes for turning their wastes from liability to assets and to decrease their carbon dioxide emissions by BECCS .
