Researchers at Flanders Institute for Biotechnology (VIB; Ghent, Belgium), in cooperation with Katholieke Universiteit Leuven (Leuven, Belgium), have developed yeast strains that produce bioethanol from waste, VIB has announced. Yeasts are used in the production of bioethanol from waste streams. There had been, until recently, a number of significant obstacles to efficient production of bioethanol. One of these was that no single strain of yeast was capable of converting all of the sugars in biomass into ethanol. Pentose sugars posed a particularly big...
