Cutting Edge: Biofuel research with Kim Magrini

November 13, 2012

The National Research Energy Laboratory (NREL) is currently conducting research into the production of liquid transportation fuels from biomass (plant matter such as trees, grasses, agricultural residue, algae, and other biological material). Biofuels, as they are known, have the potential to meet more than a quarter of world demand for transportation fuels by 2050, according to the International Energy Agency. AAAS member Kim Magrini, a principle scientist at the NREL, looks at the latest in biofuel research in AAAS's latest Cutting Edge lecture Cutting Edge: Energy -- biofuel.
