Researchers: Sawdust is Next Wave in Renewable Energy

Researchers: Sawdust is Next Wave in Renewable Energy

LOWELL, Mass. – The U.S. Department of Energy has awarded a three-year, $1 million grant to a team of researchers led by a UMass Lowell mechanical engineering professor that is working to develop renewable fuel additives from sawdust and other wood byproducts.

"The additives, which are derived from sustainable raw materials, will help offset the use of traditional fossil fuels in internal combustion engines in cars and trucks as well as in steam turbines for power generation," said Hunter Mack, a UMass Lowell assistant professor of mechanical engineering who is leading a team including researchers from academic institutions and industry. "Our lab's goal is to increase energy efficiency, reduce emissions and identify other potential sustainable fuels and chemicals of the future."
