New Software Tools to Speed up Biojet Fuel Development

November 18, 2021 — The Berkeley Lab, withing funding support from U.S. Department of Energy, has released two new publicly-available web-based software tools to help researchers and companies test different scenarios and explore bio-based fuel products. The first tool, Feedstock to Function, lets users search through a database of potential molecules and predict the molecule’s properties to learn if it could be viable as a fuel. The second tool, Bio-Cradle-to-Grave (BioC2G) explores locations and processes for scaling up a user’s production. This tool could provide biofuel producers with information relating to an optimal location based on available feedstocks and what greenhouse gas emissions and costs would be associated with developing a new production facility nearby.

These tools and additional information can be found here.
