Enzyme-producing corn key to cellulosic ethanol?
October 20, 2010
Transgenic corn might be just what the cellulosic ethanol industry needs to get going — but not just any transgenic corn.  The corn that could transform the ethanol industry is genetically engineered to produce its own special enzymes which break down cellulose into sugars for conversion into bioproducts, including ethanol. It’s cheap, it’s efficient, and it’s a technology that’s ready to go, according to its developer.

Energizing Arkansas - Enzyme Research Furthers Cellulosic Ethanol Development
March 2010
Researchers in Jonesboro, AR., under the leadership of Dr. Elizabeth Hood, are developing technology to make the production of cellulosic ethanol more affordable. A small part of most plants is starch, the component currently used to make commercial ethanol. However, this ethanol can also be made from cellulosic biomass — plant matter composed primarily of inedible cellulose fibers that form the stems and branches of most plants.

Plant Biomass Conversion
Elizabeth E. Hood, Peter Nelson, Randall Powell

As concerns regarding increasing energy prices, global warming and renewable resources continue to grow, so has scientific discovery into agricultural biomass conversion. Plant Biomass Conversion addresses both the development of plant biomass and conversion technology, in addition to issues surrounding biomass conversion, such as the affect on water resources and soil sustainability. This book also offers a brief overview of the current status of the industry and examples of production plants being used in current biomass conversion efforts.
