New research may improve production of biofuels

Scientists have discovered a way to boost the production of fuels and other renewable chemicals. According to news from Berkley Lab, researchers with the Energy Biosciences Institute (EBI) have discovered a way to use biomass fermented by yeast to enhance the production of biofuels and renewable chemicals, without having to rely on costly enzyme cocktails or pre-treatments that are hard on the environment. The researchers believe that they can engineer biofuel-producing yeast. The researches with EBI, which is a partnership between Berkeley Lab and the University of California Berkeley, made…
