Moorella thermoacetica engineered to produce acetone from syngas [Registered]

Gas fermentation is one of the promising bioprocesses to convert CO2 or syngas to important chemicals. Thermophilic gas fermentation of volatile chemicals has the potential for the development of consolidated bioprocesses that can simultaneously separate products during fermentation. Researchers at Hiroshima University and AIST in Japan report the production of acetone from CO2 and H2, CO, or syngas via engineered bacterium.…
