Princeton researchers develop platform easing chemical production from cellulose

In New Jersey, Princeton researchers have developed a new way to make fuel from cellulose speeding up a notoriously long and slow chemical process and in some cases doubling energy yields over comparable methods.   Their platform uses a recently developed cellulose emulsion that makes it easier to metabolize the compound into other chemicals. Combining that emulsion with engineered microbes and a light-based genetic tool, the team showed that they could more efficiently make biofuels from cellu...
