More efficient biomass-to-ethanol production

 

References Mascoma 50 % reduction in the amount of external enzymesCustomer: Mascoma Corporation

 CHALLENGE

Develop a novel production host for more cost-efficient lignocellulosic ethanol production.

 SOLUTION

VTT engineered a yeast strain capable of consolidated bioprocessing (CBP). This significantly reduced the need for external enzymes, improving the economics of ethanol production.

 BENEFIT

 A more cost-efficient ethanol production method.
