ExxonMobil Corporation is establishing a new research program - called the ExxonMobil Biofuels Program - at Iowa State University. The program will initially support two research projects related to the fast pyrolysis of biomass, where biomass is rapidly heated without oxygen to produce bio-oil. The bio-oil can then upgraded into transportation fuels.
