Future biofuels (2012–2015)

Queensland's biomaterials industry has the potential to be a world leader in a clean energy future. Biomass crops suitable for production locally and globally will be developed and associated emerging conversion technologies will be proven for commercial use. Bioenergy crops including grass crops (e.g. sugarcane), woody biomass (e.g. Eucalypt) & legumes (e.g. Pongamia) will be selected, improved and conversion and extraction processes developed for commercial application. This project will deliver new crop varieties with improved composition matched with new conversion technologies as the basis of a strong biofuels industry for Queensland.
