Brazilian researchers studying where biomass and sucrose accumulate in sugarcane

April 3, 2019 |

In Brazil, researchers at the University of São Paulo’s Bioscience Institute have focused on studying the genes involved in sugarcane root cell separation with the aim of developing transgenic varieties of sugarcane in which the process occurs in other parts of the plant, such as the stem, where biomass and sucrose accumulate. The cell walls […]

Global Bioenergies produces bio-isobutane from sucrose

July 22, 2015 |

In France, Global Bioenergies announced that its Bio-Isobutene process, first developed with glucose as a resource, is now adapted for the use of sucrose, the main component of sugar cane and sugar beet. The adaptation of the process to sucrose was one the first technical milestones set as part of “IBN-One”, the Joint-Venture between Global […]

Proterro's low-cost sugars from cyanobacteria

Proterro's low-cost sugars from cyanobacteria

[ 0 ] April 5, 2011 |

In New Jersey, Proterro has developed technology to produce sugar by using engineered cyanobacteria, photosynthetic organisms that can produce sucrose through a normally-occurring defense system. Their engineered cyanobacteria produces sucrose when the water they’re growing in is too salty. They claim that the water required to grow the cyanobacteria is much less than what is […]
