New insights into 3rd approach to microbial wind turbine – Biofuels Worldwide Magazine

As well as lowering by-products from catalytic processes, resulting in savings in industrial processes, the higher knowledge of the FBEB process could have the ability to benefit from the power-efficient pathways in living cells to engineer microbes to preferentially rely on them to create better products for example chemicals, fuels, or hydrogen gas.

The outcomes should enable new techniques for engineering biological systems for additional efficient manufacture of fuels and chemicals as well as for developing catalytic processes that optimise conversion of electrochemical reactions,” stated NREL investigator Cara Lubner. “Comprehending the biochemistry of bifurcation will enable more informed techniques for bioengineering microbes to create greater amounts of biofuels and reduced chemicals.”

Quite simply, the initial flavin molecule greatly improves energy-efficiency in FBEB.
