Joint BioEnergy Institute’s scientists harness enzyme in effort to cut pretreatment costs

Aymerick Eudes and Dominique Loque of the Joint Bioenergy Institute (JBEI) led a study that shows for the first time that an enzyme can be tweaked to reduce lignin in plants. Their technique could help lower the cost of converting biomass into carbon-neutral fuels to power your car and other sustainably developed bio-products.
