Microbial strains convert lignocellulosic sugars to fuel precursors, but Jeff Linger from National Renewable Energy Laboratory gave this illuminating presentation at the DOE’s BETO 2019 Project Peer Review that details how they are looking to develop and optimize hybrid biological routes to be coupled with downstream catalytic approaches towards cost efficient jet and diesel fuel molecules. Methods to upgrade sugars to organics acids can also be leveraged well beyond fuel precursors so check it out.
