It's the newest must-try recipe for biofuel: Take used rubber tires, squeeze out recovered carbons, mix with sulfuric acid and fatty acids found in household vegetable oil, and voilà! – perfectly good, usable biofuel for a greener world. Oak Ridge National Laboratory's collaborative study with Wake Forest University and Georgia Tech scientists was co-authored by Younan Xia, a professor in the School of Chemistry and Biochemistry, and the Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering.
