Scientists from the University of Twente reporting a breakthrough in the production of biofuel. They have managed to turn an agricultural waste oil to make the same properties as crude oil. Thus the oil can be processed in existing refineries, such as those in Pernis.

The University of Twente is working with European partners in the research BIOCOUP , which focuses on the development of bio-refinable oil. Shell also participates. According to the researchers, the new technology the way for large scale production of gasoline, diesel and kerosene-based bio-oil. About ten to fifteen years would be 20 percent of transportation fuels it can be made.
