University of Tübingen researchers develop process to convert whey into bio-oil

December 19, 2017 |

In Germany, scientists have developed a bioprocess that enables conversion of acid whey, a dairy by-product, without the use of additional chemicals. Researchers from the Center of Applied Geosciences at the University of Tübingen and international colleagues used microbiome cultures similar to those in the human gut. The new bio-oil can be used in animal feed or, after further refinement, as a fuel for airplanes. The results of the study were published in Joule, a new premier journal from CellPress.
