Biotech breakthrough turns waste biomass into high value chemicals

Publicado em 03 dezembro 2019
A move towards a more sustainable bio-based economy has been given a new boost by researchers who have been able to simplify a process to transform waste materials into high value chemicals. A collaboration between the UK and Brazil has shown that waste sugar cane and wheat straw from agricultural processes can be made directly into valuable chemicals with an increase in value of 5000-fold. Unlike fossil fuels, biofuels are renewable. Rather than relying on crude oil, which is in finite [...]
