US: New catalyst boosts biomass yield 40%

Chemical engineers from the University of Massachusetts Amherst, using their own licensed catalytic fast pyrolysis process for transforming renewable non-food biomass into petrochemicals, have developed a new gallium-zeolite catalyst that boosts the yield for five key “building blocks of the chemical industry” by 40% over previous catalysts. This “sustainable” production ...
