16th July 2018 – Engineering Bio-Fuels of the Future – Nigel Scrutton

Biofuels were once heralded as fuels of the future. But growing biomass for fuel consumes agricultural land and requires energy dependent processing – it fails to deliver. Water borne algae were considered a superior alternative but have failed to deliver commercially attractive solutions. New opportunities are now emerging from the new science of Synthetic Biology Read more about 16th July 2018 – Engineering Bio-Fuels of the Future – Nigel Scrutton[…]
