Group of researchers also optimizing the production of biodegradable plastic from methanol, via bacteria A cross-disciplinary team from the FAPESP Shell Research Centre for Gas Innovation (RCGI) is studying microalgae that have the potential of production bioproducts from carbon dioxide...
When investigating bacteria that are already known and produce a plastic of high aggregate value from methane, scientists from USP discovered a micro-organism that generates another type of biopolymer. A few months ago, biologist Elen Aquino Perpétuo and a team...
The goal here is to establish a different chemical route for the transformation of methane into PHB, which is a biopolymer of high added value With the use of micro-organisms, biologist Elen Aquino Perpétuo and a group of eight researchers...
