On the cover

Catalytic pyrolysis of biomass could be a cost-competitive route for biofuels production. To achieve that, development of dedicated catalysts for selective deoxygenation and cracking of bio-oil would be essential. Such breakthrough catalysts could pave the way for scaling up the existing pyrolysis technologies to achieve commercial production of biofuels through pyrolysis. In this issue of Biofuel Research Journal, Dr. Ali Imran (University of Twente & King Abdullah University of Science & Technology) and his coauthrs take us through the details of various catalysts developed with unique properties for enhanced formation of desirable compounds by pyrolysis. They emphasize that the way forward is to develop more dedicated catalysts suitable for industrial scale operations. Cover art by BiofuelResJ.
