HOLTZAPPLE, Mark T. Biological Hydrogen Carriers: Harnessing Fossil Fuels in a Carbon-Constrained World. [online]. 2009, n.29, pp.121-128. ISSN 0121-4993.

Due to their widespread availability, the use of lignocellulosic resources as feedstocks for fuels and chemicals is very promising. To make this a practical reality, 18 years of research at Texas A&M University have resulted in the development of a novel process known as MixAlco.TM This article compares this process with other technologies and provides some process details. At the end, a brief economic analysis is presented.

Keywords : Alcohol; alkanes; carboxylate platform; economics; efficiency; energy yields; gasification; MixAlco; sugar platform; thermochemical platform.
