Targeted Microbial Development: The Digest’s 2017 Multi-Slide Guide to Biological Upgrading of Biomass Sugars

Submitted by on September 11, 2017 – 1:29 pmNo Comment

by Jim Lane (Biofuels Digest)  The US Department of Energy is supporting projects to investigate and recommend promising pathways for advanced biological upgrading of biomass sugars and lignin to hydrocarbons (HC) and co-products to support the DOE BETO 2022 goal of enabling advanced HC fuels at $3/GGE.

In this project, a NREL-led research team is investigating the engineering of  Zymomonasfor 2,3 butanediol production; lignin upgrading to muconicacid by Pseudomonas; and improving production of fatty alcohols in oleaginous yeast

Project leader Michael E. Himmel at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory prepared these illuminating slides on the project’s promise and progress for the DOE Project Peer Review meetings.  READ MORE
