Using zeolites that are extremely porous materials, where ten grams can have an internal surface area the size of a soccer field, the cavities make them useful […]

Kobe University engineers have developed a technique to repartition carbon resources from carbohydrates to lipids in microalgae. They hope that this method can be applied to biofuel production. A cross-institutional collaboration developed the technique to repartition carbon resources from carbohydrates to lipids in microalgae. This discovery was the result of a collaboration between a research […]

A new photoenzyme derived from microscopic algae uses blue light to catalyze the conversion of fatty acids, found in fats and oils, into alkanes and alkenes. The research conducted at the National Accelerator Laboratory is focused on enzymes – proteins to catalyze biochemical reactions – that are rarely driven by light. Scientists have identified only […]

An Earlham Institute new study shows theMiscanthus genus of grasses can be grown in lower agricultural grade conditions – such as marginal land – due to their remarkable resilience and photosynthetic capacity at low temperatures. Some grasses are a sustainable energy source that could be a driving force towards achieving net zero carbon emissions, according […]

Ohio State University scientists have figured out a cheaper, more efficient way to conduct a chemical reaction at the heart of many biological processes, which may lead to better ways to create biofuels from plants. Scientists around the world have been trying for years to create biofuels and other bioproducts more cheaply. The Ohio State […]
