Synthetic Methylotrophy: The Digest’s 2018 Multi-Slide Guide to Engineering Platform Organisms for Methane & Methanol Conversion to Fuels & Chemicals
by Jim Lane (Biofuels Digest) Harnessing Methane & Methanol as Feedstocks, that’s the subject of this overview of the uses of methanol when used by engineered platform organisms for fuel and chemical production. The background is the abundant CH4supply of recoverable natural gas (US and worldwide), and the CH4 and/or syngas (from various renewable sources) that is readily converted to methanol.
This illuminating presentation was given by University of Delaware professor Terry Papoutsakis at ABLC 2018 in Washington DC. READ MORE
