Waste-based bioeconomy: From Newspapers to Bioethanol.

Mexican students of the Universidad del Valle de Mexico (UVM) Coyoacan Campus, in Mexico City created bioethanol using newspaper. To obtain this bioethanol, the process is via the acid digestion of newspaper, for it to later be fermented and finally distilled. The group of students used various types of paper, but eventually discovered that newspaper was the most effective option. ...

Discovery of the enzyme capable of mass produce biofuels.

Microalgae are a promising next-generation source of feedstocks for biofuel production with the potential to serve as a practical alternative to petroleum-based transportation fuels. Depending on the microalgal species, the oils produced vary from triacylglycerols to hydrocarbons. Hydrocarbon-based fuels are preferred over other biofuels, as they are highly compatible with existing petroleum...

Proof-of-principle that Syngas platform can be integrated to produce commodity chemicals

Synthesis gas (Syngas), a mixture of CO, H 2 , and CO 2 , is a promising renewable feedstock for bio-based production of organic chemicals. Production of medium-chain fatty acids can be performed via chain elongation, utilizing acetate and ethanol as main substrates. Acetate and ethanol are main products of syngas fermentation by acetogens. Therefore, syngas can be indirectly used as a...
