Microbe Used to Improve Biofuel Production, Missouri University Study

Biofuel production can be an expensive process that requires considerable use of fossil fuels, but a Missouri University of Science and Technology microbiologist's patented process could reduce the cost and the reliance on fossil fuels, while streamlining the process. The process involves a microbe that thrives in extreme conditions. Dr. Melanie Mormile, a professor of biological sciences at Missouri S&T, has found a particular bacterium, called "Halanaerobium hydrogeniformans," that can be used to streamline biofuel production.
