Genetically Modified Microorganisms with Enhanced Resistance to Acetate Efficient conversion of lignocellulose to alternative fuels is hindered by the difficulty of breaking down plant biomass. Pretreatment of materials is a necessary part of the production process; but during pretreatment, chemicals such as acetate form and inhibit or even stop fermentation. To address this challenge, ORNL resea…

A Gene for Reduction of Lignin Content in Plants One of the biggest challenges in making biofuels viable is finding the most economical way to extract the maximum amount of fuel from plant biomass. The volume of fuel that can be produced from a plant depends primarily on how easily the plant s cell walls can be broken down or degraded. However, because cell walls are recalcitrant (i.e., resistant…
