QUT is testing a novel technology to turn sugarcane bagasse into biofuel

QUT is testing a novel technology developed by US company Mercurius Biorefining to convert biomass into jet and diesel fuels.

The project aims to optimise the processes of Mercurius’s patented REACH technology for efficiency and cost-effectiveness and help determine achievable yields and the quality of the fuel converted from sugarcane bagasse (fibrous residue left after juice extraction) and other biomass.
