  • A new publication in collaboration with researchers from NC State Univ. USA. Evidence of mixotrophic carbon-capture by n-butanol-producer Clostridium beijerinckii Abstract Recent efforts to combat increasing greenhouse gas emissions include their capture into advanced biofuels, such as butanol. Traditionally, biobutanol research has been centered solely on its generation from sugars. Our results show partial re-assimilation of CO2 and H2 by n-butanol-producer C. beijerinckii. This was detected as synchronous CO2/H2 ...
