New papers on fuel production via natural and artificial photosynthesis

I’m excited to share a couple of new papers, one in Environmental Science & Technology and one in Energy & Environmental Science.  The ES&T paper, entitled “The role of lignin in reducing life-cycle carbon emissions, water use, and cost for US cellulosic biofuels” has just been posted in it’s pre-publication “just accepted” format.  The other, entitled “Life-cycle net energy assessment of large-scale hydrogen production via photoelectrochemical water splitting” is led by Roger Sathre and was published by EES last month.
