KIST develops biodiesel from lignocellulosic biomass thanks to microorganism

October 19, 2020 |

In South Korea, Korea Bizwire reports the Korea Institute of Science and Technology has developed a process to produce biodiesel from lignocellulosic biomass thanks to a microorganism, expanding potential feedstocks for biodiesel to include vast amounts of paper waste including delivery boxes. The microorganism produces biodiesel by consuming the sugars in biomass, specifically glucose and xylose. What’s more, the researchers say the microorganism is said to produce double the amount of biodiesel as other similar organisms.
