Biodiesel made from discarded cardboard boxes

Development of a microorganism that doubles the yield of biodiesel precursor production using genetic scissors and based on the principles of evolution

02-Dec-2020

Automobile exhaust emitted by fossil-fuel-based vehicles, especially those operating on diesel, is known to be a major source of fine dust and greenhouse gases. Using biodiesel instead of diesel is an effective way of coping with climate change caused by greenhouse gases while reducing fine dust ...
