Creating Fuel from CO2: Progress Made

TheBioenergySite
Monday, December 31, 2012

A working collaboration makes progress in developing an advanced microbiological pathway to convert CO2 to fuels and chemicals.

Synthetic biology researchers Ginkgo BioWorks has validated that its genetically modified microbes can utilise a feedstock of formate produced from CO2 by risk management business DNV, reports 'TheBioenergySite'.

DNV’s input to the process has also met metrics required for commercialisation of the electrolytic production of formic acid and formate salt from CO2.



Development of  electro-fuels technology is an important advance in the utilisation and recycling of CO2 providing a pathway towards sustainability and self-sufficiency.
