Biofuel production from cyanobacteria improved at high temperature [Registered]

Arizona State University (ASU) scientists have developed a new method that relies on heat to improve the yield and lower the costs of high-energy biofuels production from cyanobacteria ASU has been at the forefront of algal research for renewable energy production. Since 2007, ASU has spearheaded several projects that utilize photosynthetic microbes cyanobacteria, as a potential new source of renewable, carbon-neutral fuels. Efforts have focused on developing cyanobacteria as a feedstock for biodiesel production, as well as benchtop and large-scale photobioreactors to optimize growth and production. ASU Biodesign Institute researcher Roy Curtiss, a microbiologist who uses genetic engineering of bacteria…
