New research may have found a way to develop better biofuel

Researchers have created a new “nano-reactor” that could catalyze hydrogen production. According to a new study published in the scientific journal, Nature Chemistry, researchers have managed to develop a new biomaterial, by hiding a modified enzyme inside a virus, which is capable of efficiently catalyzing the production of hydrogen. Dubbed the “nano-reactor,” the modified enzyme may result in a biofuel production process that is more efficient and profitable. The modified hydrogen-producing enzyme is 150 times more efficient than an enzyme that has been unaltered. Within the capsid, which is the…
