BGU is home to world-renowned researchers who are developing novel ways to produce renewable liquid fuels.

BGU’s Blechner Center for Industrial Catalysis and Process Development is a partner in the Israeli Center of Excellence on Solar Liquids, focused on developing liquid fuels from a variety of feedstocks. Production of biofuels from microalgae is a central research aim at the Landau Family Microalgal Biotechnology Laboratory, which is developing biotechnologies for mass production of microalgae for various commercial purposes. Other BGU researchers are creating synthetic gas, a carbon-neutral feedstock for liquid fuels. One group is working on creating alternative fuel for cars from recycled tires.
