Smaller, cheaper biofuel reactors

Researchers at the University of Minnesota have developed a quick way to waste biomass such as sawdust into biofuel or syngas. The researchers feel that if their process can be scaled up, it could beocme a much more energy efficient method for making biofuels because the system would consist of small, fast reactors located very close to the biomass source. Their system breaks down the biomass and converts it into syngas ten times faster than other methods.
