Enzyme cocktail developed in Brazil powers production of second-generation ethanol

Publicado em 19 agosto 2020
Researchers at the Brazilian Center for Research in Energy and Materials (CNPEM) have genetically engineered a fungus to produce a cocktail of enzymes that break down the carbohydrates in biomass, such as sugarcane trash (tops and leaves) and bagasse, into fermentable sugar for industrially efficient conversion into biofuel. The development of low-cost enzyme cocktails is one of the main challenges in producing second-generation ethanol. Second-generation biofuels are manufactured from [...]
