Biofuels and Environmental Catalysis


  • Cross-cut lean exhaust emissions reduction simulations (CLEERS) - CLEERS's overall objective is to promote development of improved computational tools for simulating realistic full-system performance of lean-burn engines and the associated emissions control systems.
  • DieselNet - Online information service on clean diesel engines and diesel emissions.
  • DOE: Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy - The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Biomass Program develops technology for conversion of biomass (plant-derived material) to valuable fuels, chemicals, materials and power, so as to reduce dependence on foreign oil and foster growth of biorefineries.
  • DOE: FreedomCAR and Vehicle Technologies Program - It is developing more energy efficient and environmentally friendly highway transportation technologies that will enable America to use less petroleum.
  • National Biodiesel Board - The NBB is the national trade association representing the biodiesel industry as the coordinating body for research and development in the United States.
  • Reducing Emissions: Cleaner Diesels - ChipExpress company link - as requested by Susan Bowen's students in the Mason Learning Center.
  • USDA - The United States Department of Agriculture Biofuels research.
