Bringing up Better Biofuel
<http://blogs.usda.gov/2016/05/05/bringing-up-better-biofuel/>The idea of replacing fossil-based fuel, such as petroleum, with a renewable energy source is enough to get any environmentalist excited. Now, Agricultural Research Service (ARS) scientists have advanced a process to produce crude liquid fuel called "bio-oil" from agricultural waste. The bio-oil is produced by a process called "pyrolysis," which involves chemical decomposition of plant and other organic matter at very high heat without oxygen.  This new technology for producing renewable fuels is called "tail-gas reactive pyrolysis" or TGRP.
