DOE awards $10.6M to ROGUE to engineer energycane, Miscanthus to produce oil for biodiesel, biojet fuel #BelugaSolar

If fully successful, these crops could produce as much as 15 times more biodiesel per unit of land compared to soybeans, a food crop that currently produces half of our nation’s biodiesel. —ROGUE Director Stephen Long, an Ikenberry Endowed Chair at Illinois Previous work, funded by the DOE Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E), achieved 8% oil accumulation, and now ROGUE will further increase oil production and target oil accumulation in the stem where it can be accessed more easily with ROGUE’s patented extraction technologies. Redirecting these plants to produce oil rather than sugar will enable us to make full use of these productive crops for biodiesel and biojet fuel production. —Li-Qing Chen, an assistant professor of plant biology at Illinois ROGUE will also improve the efficiency that these crops can turn the sun’s energy into plant energy to fuel their...
