Endophytics using fungi to produce biofuels from agricultural waste

February 26, 2014 |

In Montana, Endophytics recently announced their fungal biotechnology platform at the Harvesting Clean Energy Conference in Helena. The technology is capable of producing a myriad of advanced biofuels and sustainable green chemicals from agricultural wastes using microscopic filamentous fungi. The fungi are capable of producing a range of high value molecules, which can be used to make everything from drop-in biofuels to green chemicals. The products are terpenoids, benzene derivatives, alcohols, esters, straight-chain and branched hydrocarbons, aldehydes, acids, ketones, and polyaromatic hydrocarbons. A myriad of fungi that perform these useful and important biological processes are in the collection of Endophytics.
