LanzaTech, INVISTA find direct pathway to bio-based butadiene

December 1, 2015 |

In Kansas, INVISTA and LanzaTech have developed a metabolic ‘toolkit’ that has been successfully applied to generate novel metabolic pathways to bio-derived butadiene and key precursors, such as 1,3 butanediol and 2,3 butanediol, resulting in new direct and 2-step processes for butadiene utilizing gas-fermentation technology. A metabolic toolkit integrates detailed knowledge about a bacterium’s genetic […]
