Sustainable biofuels project funded

The National Science Foundation has awarded nearly $2 million to Ximing Cai and colleagues at the University of Illinois to make a holistic, systems-based analysis of sustainably producing cellulosic biofuels.

The project, Interdependence, Resilience and Sustainability of Infrastructures for Biofuel Development, will look at engineering and social aspects of the interdependencies of infrastructures involved in producing cellulosic biofuels.

The study will examine the systems involved in growing biofuel feedstocks and producing the fuels. Systems include water and transportation.
