Producing Biomass Enzymes in Crops

11:22 AM MDT | July 7, 2008 | Michelle Bryner

A group of scientists at Texas A&M (College Station, TX) have developed an economically viable process to produce cellulase—the enzyme used to breakdown biomass for biofuel production—in corn crops. The new process produces several value-added products to offset the cost of generating the biomass enzymes, which, in turn, lowers the overall cost of biofuel production. "By carefully designing the processing chain, from a single crop of maize we can deliver oil that can be turned into biodiesel, cellulose that can be used to make other biofuels...
