Biofuel Production

Nanoparticles or nanometer particles are particles that are generally smaller than 50 nm and have unique morphology, large porosity and altered electronic state. To exploit these unique proper­ties, we have been collaborating with scientists in chemical engineering, chemistry, physics and other departments at K-State to develop nanostructured particles for biomass pretreatment, cellulose hydrolysis and biofuel production.
