Brown University Identifies Hungry Microbe That Could be Key to Turning Biomass Into Biofuel

Comments Off on Brown University Identifies Hungry Microbe That Could be Key to Turning Biomass Into Biofuel

The quick rise and depressing downward spiral of the ethanol industry proved that using food to make biofuel is both wasteful and costly. Non food-based biofuels, such as those derived from grasses, trees, or algae, are far more sustainable but harder to produce. In order to access the sugars in plant biomass that will eventually become fuel, scientists must find a way to break down lignin, a polymer that forms the thick, woody cell walls of most plants and trees. Now researchers at Brown University have identified a type of bacteria  that loves to digest lignin, and it might be able to act as a tiny biorefinery for sustainable fuel production.
