Nanocatalyst Developed By Chemists Ensures Continuous Biofuel Synthesis

[caption id="attachment_1313" align="alignright" width="256"] University of RUDN[/caption] Dealing with biological systems is not easy because they can be affected by different environmental factors like temperature, pressure, and pH. The buildup of microbial metabolites is usually the cause of a change in pH. Keeping the fermentation conditions fairly stable for optimal yield has remained one of the greatest challenges that scientist has to deal with. There seems to be a light…

Engineers Studying The Use Of Microbes For Biofuel Production

[caption id="attachment_1306" align="alignright" width="256"] Scientists have to remove some of the bottlenecks in microbial metabolic pathways.[/caption] The by-products of many microbes have turned around to become useful products used by man as fuels, part of synthetic chemicals, drugs, and polymers. For example, anaerobic fermentation of some bacterial species yields biogas. The renewed interest in renewable transportation biofuels has prompted increased research focused on using microbial systems for biofuel production. The…
