Microbial Who-Done-It for Biofuels

New Technique Identifies Populations Within a Microbial Community Responsible for Biomass Deconstruction One of the keys to commercialization of advanced biofuels is the development of cost-competitive ways to extract fermentable sugars from lignocellulosic biomass. The use of enzymes from thermophiles … Continue reading

Sweet Success: Berkeley Lab Researchers Find Way to Catalyze More Sugars from Biomass

Catalysis may initiate almost all modern industrial manufacturing processes, but catalytic activity on solid surfaces is poorly understood. This is especially true for the cellulase enzymes used to release fermentable sugars from cellulosic biomass for the production of advanced biofuels. … Continue reading
