Danish researchers find rare microalgae enzyme to improve renewable diesel production

December 12, 2019 |

In Denmark, Researchers have found an unusual, light-dependent enzyme in microalgae. A new project at the Department of Engineering, Aarhus University, will use the enzyme in a system to produce drop-in fuels from waste oils and fats.

A grant of DKK 3 million (EUR 0.4 mill.) from the Novo Nordisk Foundation will kick-start a new research project at Aarhus University aiming to develop a system that, via completely natural processes, converts organic waste into sustainable biofuel we can pump directly into our cars.
