Scientists move closer to xylose bioethanol production

Common garden enzymes could be used to boost bioethanol production, according to new research. The enzymes were successfully extracted from garden soil by Nadia Skorupa Parachin of Lund University, Sweden. Ms Parachin had in mind the use of natural sugar xylose for ethanol production, which requires fast-acting enzymes in order to be effective. She tested her enzymes for efficacy against alternatives and found that they were capable of binding to xylose more efficiently. Ms Parachin's supervisor, professor Marie Gorwa-Grauslund, explained that despite this breakthrough, there is still some way to go before xylose bioethanol production becomes a reality.
