New paper on jet fuel and lubricants production published in PNAS
I’m thrilled to share a new paper published in PNAS today entitled “Novel pathways for fuels and lubricants from biomass optimized using life-cycle greenhouse gas assessment”. The paper combines novel experimental results for a variety of pathways converting C5 and C6 sugars to jet fuels and lubricants with life-cycle assessment and optimization to explore how different biorefinery configurations can affect the net GHG emissions. Madhesan Balakrishnan is the lead author.
