Patent Released for Method Improving Producer Gas Fermentation

September 21, 2018

During gasification, biomass is converted into producer gas or syngas, which consists of carbon monoxide (CO), hydrogen (H2), and carbon dioxide (CO2). Syngas can be fermented to liquid fuels and chemicals using microorganisms such as acetogenic bacteria (acetogens). Gasification-fermentation technology used in converting biomass to alcohols is still an emerging technology. Two of the critical Read More
