Alternative Fuel Sources Driving Rutgers Chemical and Biochemical Engineering Research

Making fuel from plants has long been a goal of scientists and engineers hoping to limit wild swings in fuel prices and availability and to prepare for a time when fi nite supplies of petroleum dry up.But the promise of obtaining abundant and sus-tainable supplies of liquid fuel from biomass, by and large agricultural crops, is a challenge that still vexes scientists and engineers after decades of research.
