Thermotolerant yeast can provide more climate-smart ethanol

Oct 02, 2014 19:00 BST Chalmers University of Technology With a simple mutation, yeast can grow in higher than normal temperatures. Researchers at Chalmers University of Technology demonstrate this in an article in the scientific journal Science. The findings may result in ethanol being more effectively manufactured for vehicle fuel, as well as increase the possibility of using residual waste as a raw material.
