Alcohol Production from Carbon Dioxide
TS-014972 — An electrochemical process on a metal electrode catalyst is used to produce alcohols such as ethanol, ethylene, propanol, acetic acid, ethane, and formic acid from the direct conversion of carbon dioxide
In the United States, there is an increasing interest in ethanol as an alternative fuel source to decrease the dependence on fossil fuels. In 2012, the National Corn Growers Association reported that 27.3% of the corn harvested in the U.S. was used for the production of ethanol. This has sparked a…

Co-inducer and Antibiotic-free Plasmid Addiction System
TS-014945 — A novel plasmid addiction system for cost-effective end-product generation.
The fermentative production of biobutanol through the use of Clostridium is a well-known process and utilized for production of solvents and fuels. However, problems with this method include difficulty in genetically manipulating native strains, scalability for industrial applications, and low yie…

Butanol Production from Renewable Biomass
TS-014747 — A genetically engineered bacteria pathway directed to selectively generate butanol over competing by-products.
Acetone-Butanol-Ethanol (ABE) Fermentation is one of two methods to produce butanol from biomass feedstocks. Various active enzymes or acids are exposed to a biomass feedstock and subsequently produce primarily acetone, butanol and ethanol. Previous attempts in the industry to use Clostridium stra…
