Butanol producing bacteria


May 11, 2017 · Butanol is an intensively used industrial solvent and an attractive alternative biofuel, but the bioproduction suffers from its high toxicity. Among the native butanol producers and heterologous butanol-producing hosts, Bacillus subtilis 168 exhibited relatively higher butanol tolerance. Mar 13, 2013 · The building blocks of blue-green algae – sunlight, carbon dioxide and bacteria – are being used by researchers at KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm to produce butanol, a hydrocarbon... 1 Engineering Alternative Butanol Production Platforms in 2 Heterologous Bacteria 3 4 5 David R.

Jan 14, 2016 · The endospore forming, gram-positive Clostridium acetobutylicum is a classic example of fermentative obligate anaerobes. Under anaerobic conditions, it ferments sugars or starch to acetate and butyrate and then shifts them to solvents such as butanol, acetone and ethanol.
