Microorganisms help production

Oil is still the most economically attractive resource for fuels and basic chemicals that can be used to manufacture everyday products such as plastic bottles and detergent. New biotechnological processes aim to simplify ...

One-step production of aromatic polyesters by E. coli strains

KAIST systems metabolic engineers have defined a novel strategy for microbial aromatic polyesters production fused with synthetic biology from renewable biomass. The team of Distinguished Professor Sang Yup Lee of the Department ...

CO2-neutral hydrogen from biomass

Without fossil fuels, there can be no blast furnace process – but hydrogen could play a more important role in the future. An environmentally friendly process is being developed at TU Wien by which biomass can be used to ...

Neural networks to obtain synthetic petroleum

The UPV/EHU's Catalytic Processes for Waste Valorisation research group is working on a project related to obtaining bio-oils or synthetic petroleum using biomass. In a paper recently published in the scientific journal Fuel, ...

Pure industrial chemicals by gasifying lignocellulosic biomass

VTT has demonstrated that lignocellulosic biomass can be successfully converted into pure BTX chemicals: benzene, toluene and xylene. The aim of this research is to enable the use of wood-based chemicals to replace crude ...
