Bioproduction of Renewable Ethylene from an Engineered Cyanobacterium

Current ethylene production from fossil fuel is the largest CO2-emitting process in the chemical industry. Bioproduction produces ethylene through consumption of CO2. Advancements in bioproduction of ethylene is of great importance as an environmentally friendly alternative and to supplement conventional ethylene production as demand increases. The aim of this research was to quantify ethylene production

Metabolically Engineering D-Lactate from Corynebacterium Glutamicum

Plastics used today are manufactured from oil, coal, natural gas, and contribute to environmental pollution. An alternative cost-effective bioplastic, “polylactic acid,” can be produced from D-lactate and L-lactate. D-lactic acid is the uncommon isomer and is not produced in high-levels by microorganisms. So, Corynebacterium glutamicum was metabolically engineered to produce D-lactate from biomass. C. glutamicum
