Global Bioenergies and LanzaTech to collaborate in the bioproduction of isobutene from carbon monoxide [Registered]

Global Bioenergies and LanzaTech are collaborating to begin a feasibility study to examine whether Global Bioenergies’ pathway, leading to the direct production of isobutene, can be functionally transferred into LanzaTech’s carbon monoxide using organism. Global Bioenergies’ core technology consists in a proprietary artificial pathway allowing the direct fermentative production of isobutene from plant based glucose. LanzaTech’s processes use proprietary microorganisms that use nonfood resources as feedstocks. In the study with Global Bioenergies, the focus is on the use of carbon monoxide gas for isobutene production. Carbon monoxide can be readily found in waste industrial gas streams such as those found…
