Oak Ridge Pioneers New Way to See Biomass Pretreatment Impacts

Submitted by on April 10, 2017 – 10:36 pmNo Comment

by Jim Lane (Biofuels Digest)  In Tennessee, Oak Ridge National Laboratory scientists have reported in Nature a new high resolution approach to visioning the impact of biomass pre-treatment technology. By combining spectroscopy and emerging microscopy techniques, the team measured the nanoscale mechanical and chemical effects of pretreatments used to improve the breakdown of lignin, a woody component in plants. Data from the new methods can guide researchers as they develop plants with less lignin and “encourages our work in improved modified plants and pretreatments that supports a path to easier biomass-to-biofuel conversion processes,” said Brian Davison of ORNL’s BioEnergy Science Center.  READ MORE  Abstract (Nature Scientific Reports)
