Tennessee researchers say heat-loving bacteria could be key to next-gen biofuels

Tennessee researchers say heat-loving bacteria could be key to next-gen biofuels

July 5, 2012 |

In Tennessee, the identification of key proteins in a group of heat-loving bacteria by researchers at the Department of Energy’s BioEnergy Science Center could help light a fire under next-generation biofuel production. Scientists have long been on the hunt for cost-effective ways to break down complex plant material such as switchgrass in order to access sugars […]

Researchers develop pathway to produce power from proteins

May 16, 2012 |

In the UK, researchers at the University of Leeds have developed an electrode capable of controlling the biochemical reactions needed for biofuel cells to produce large amounts of electricity and are now applying the same technique to a catalytic membrane. The hope is that the membrane may be capable of converting proteins into electricity by […]
