Renewable Biofuels from Bacteria

Here is an interesting article from Science Daily entitled “Green and Lean: Secreting Bacteria Eliminate Cost Barriers for Renewable Biofuel Production“.

A Biodesign Institute at Arizona State University research team has developed a process that removes a key obstacle to producing low-cost, renewable biofuels from bacteria. The team has reprogrammed photosynthetic microbes to secrete high-energy fats, making byproduct recovery and conversion to biofuels easier and potentially more commercially viable.

The work was supported by Biodesign Institute seed funding and a $5 million grant from the U.S. Department of Energy Advanced Research Projects Agency.
