- 1. $10M DOE grant to help boost camelina oilseed yield
MSU scientists will lead a $10 million U.S. Department of Energy grant to explore ways to boost the biofuel crop yield for the oilseed plant, camelina.
- 2. Cellulosic biofuels can benefit the environment if managed correctly
Could cellulosic biofuels become a green fuel of the future? Researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy-funded Great Lakes Bioenergy Research Center, including MSU's Phil Robertson, say yes, but with a few important caveats.
- 3. Molecular Velcro boosts microalgae's potential in biofuel, industrial applications
MSU scientists have engineered “molecular Velcro” into cyanobacteria, boosting this microalgae’s biofuel viability as well as its potential for other research.
- 4. Fertilizer use could reduce climate benefit of cellulosic biofuels
A new study from the Great Lakes Bioenergy Research Center and Michigan State shows that the use of nitrogen fertilizer on switchgrass crops can produce a sharp increase in emissions of nitrous oxide, a significant driver of global climate change.
- 5. MSU partners with ExxonMobil to advance biofuel research
A new $1 million relationship between Michigan State University and ExxonMobil will expand research designed to progress the fundamental science required to advance algae-based fuels.
- 6. Perennial biofuel crops' water consumption similar to corn
A recent study from the Great Lakes Bioenergy Research Center and published in Environmental Research Letters looks at how efficiently “second generation” biofuel crops – perennial, non-food crops such as switchgrass or native grasses – use rainwater and how these crops affect overall water balance.
- 7. Discovery of new plant switch could boost crops, biofuel production
A team of Michigan State University researchers has discovered a switch that regulates plant photosynthesis – the process that lets plants store solar energy and use it to grow and produce food.
- 8. Discovery of cellular snooze button advances cancer and biofuel research
The discovery of a cellular snooze button has allowed a team of Michigan State University scientists to potentially improve biofuel production and offer insight on the early stages of cancer.
