Researchers devise way to reduce the amount of enzymes needed in the production of cellulosic biofuels [Registered]

Nonspecific adsorption of cellulases to lignin hinders enzymatic biomass deconstruction. Researchers at Rutgers University-New Brunswick and Michigan State University have demonstrated how to design and genetically engineer enzyme surfaces so they bind less to lignocellulosic feedstocks, reducing enzyme costs in the production of cellulosic biofuels production.…
