Engineering Clostridia: The Digest’s 2018 Multi-Slide Guide to n-Butanol Production from Biomass and CO2

March 4, 2018 |

The DOE is supporting a project to develop engineered clostridia strains and fermentation process that can directly utilize cellulose and fix CO2 for n-butanol production from lignocellulosic biomass. The engineered strains can be used in fermentation to produce n-butanol from lignocellulosic biomass at a targeted cost of $2.25/gal or less than $3/gge (gallon gasoline equivalent).

This project has three partners -Ohio State University (OSU), Green Biologics (GB), and University of Alabama (UA) -with a long collaboration history working on biobutanol production.

Shang-Tian Yang of Ohio State University gave this illuminating overview of the project’s promise and progress at the DOE Project Peer Review meetings.
