Science Nation – Green Gasoline

With funding from the National Science Foundation, researchers at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst have made a breakthrough in the development of “green gasoline,” a liquid identical to standard gasoline yet created from sustainable biomass sources, such as switch grass and poplar trees. While it may be five to 10 years before green gasoline arrives at the pump or finds its way into a fighter jet, these breakthroughs have bypassed significant hurdles to bringing green gasoline biofuels to market.
