Researchers use light to boost biofuel production from yeast

Researchers use light to boost biofuel production from yeast

April 2, 2018 |

In New Jersey, researchers at the Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment use light to enhance the production of biofuels, drugs and commercial chemicals in bioreactors, which contain microorganisms such as yeast that have been metabolically engineered to make biological products. The team uses a technology called optogenetics—involving light to control cellular processes—to turn […]

Princeton studies show how algae use carbon dioxide for photosynthesis

Princeton studies show how algae use carbon dioxide for photosynthesis

September 25, 2017 |

In New Jersey, two new studies of green algae have revealed new insights into how these organisms siphon carbon dioxide from the air for use in photosynthesis, a key factor in their ability to grow so quickly. Understanding this process may someday help researchers improve the growth rate of crops such as wheat and rice. […]

Princeton researchers use catalytic hydropyrolysis to create drop-in fuels

Princeton researchers use catalytic hydropyrolysis to create drop-in fuels

July 12, 2017 |

In New Jersey, researchers from Princeton’s Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment evaluated a method that creates fuel from wood residues, sawdust and branches. The method, called catalytic hydropyrolysis, could use the refining and distribution systems now used for gasoline to create a fuel that would work in modern engines. In a paper published this spring in the journal […]

Researchers modify enzyme surfaces to reduce biofuel production costs

Researchers modify enzyme surfaces to reduce biofuel production costs

July 6, 2017 |

In New Jersey, biofuels like the ethanol in U.S. gasoline could get cheaper thanks to experts at Rutgers University-New Brunswick and Michigan State University. They’ve demonstrated how to design and genetically engineer enzyme surfaces so they bind less to corn stalks and other cellulosic biomass, reducing enzyme costs in biofuels production, according to a study […]
