Developing advanced biomass fuel to replace diesel

  • Detail

The research team of the joint bioenergy Institute (jbei) of the U.S. Department of energy has constructed two microorganisms in the way of synthetic biology: an E. coli and a Saccharomyces cerevisiae, which can produce bisabolane type sesquiterpenes (terpene) with a decrease of 0.94 PCT month on month. Sesquiterpenes produced in the preliminary test have the potential to become a biomass synthetic substitute for No. 2 diesel oil (dcfrp density is much less than metal 2). Relevant research results have been published on nature communications

usually, the way to clean the fuel tank can be to put kerosene into the fuel tank or into the fuel tank. Taek soon Lee, head of jbei metabolic engineering team, said that this is the first research report on the substitution of D2 diesel oil by biosynthetic myrrh, and it is also the first time to use Escherichia coli and yeast microorganisms to produce myrrh in large quantities. Myrrh has almost the same properties as D2 biodiesel. At the same time, due to its branching and circulating chemical structure, it has lower freezing point and cloud point, which are better advantages for use as a fuel
