Future green cars to literally run with tree in gas tank

Future green cars would run by just putting a tree in the gas tank, at least thats what researchers mean as they look at forest biomass as raw materials for the development of green biofuels and chemicals.


Washington, June 17 : Future green cars would run by just putting a tree in the gas tank, at least that's what researchers mean as they look at forest biomass as raw materials for the development of green biofuels and chemicals.

Dr. In-Gyu Choi, associate professor in the department of forest science at Seoul National University, who will coordinate a session at the 2010 IUFRO World Congress, said that forest biomass is renewable, abundant and carbon-neutral. Its importance as a future source of green energy and green chemicals should not be ignored.

The session will involve itself with "look-ahead" science - things such as innovative technologies to convert forest biomass into bioalcohol, synthetic gasoline and diesel as well as the future market possibilities for forest-based green chemicals to be used as the raw materials for biodegradable bioplastics.

Plastics from biomass are made the same way as petroleum-based plastics, but are actually cheaper to manufacture and meet or exceed most performance standards with the exception of water resistance and longevity.

Eco-efficiency - and this session falls under that broad category - aims at the delivery of competitively priced goods and services that satisfy human needs and improve quality of life, while progressively reducing ecological impacts and resource use intensity to a level compatible with the earth's estimated carrying capacity.
