LanzaTech is initially converting carbon monoxide (CO) to 2,3-butanediol
and then subsequently converts it to 1,2-butadiene using gas fermentation.
and ethanol were the predominant fermentation products in the IR silage (Table 2).
Several companies are also working on ways to coax microbes into making large quantities of 2,3-butanediol
, which can be chemically converted to butadiene, the basis of another kind of synthetic rubber.
Cyanobacterial conversion of carbon dioxide to 2,3-butanediol
The collaboration will initially focus on the production of butadiene in a two-step process from Lanza-Tech CO-derived 2,3-butanediol
The collaboration will initially focus on the production of butadiene in a 2-step process from LanzaTech CO-derived 2,3-butanediol
LanzaTech is also partnering with the Department of Energy's Pacific Northwest National Laboratory on a project focused on the upgrading of LanzaTech's 2,3-butanediol
to a synthetic paraffinic kerosene.
The relative nonspecificity of glycerol dehydrogenase from Enterobacter aerogenes toward diols and triols allows interference with this test by propylene glycol, glycerol, 1,2-butanediol, and 2,3-butanediol
(2, 5, 6).
LanzaTech aims to make ethanol and 2,3-butanediol
from flue gas, while Fulcrum BioEnergy is financing its first MSW gasification facility.
The following chemicals were obtained from Merck: Trizma base, EDTA, magnesium acetate, potassium hydrogen carbonate, 1,2-ethanediol, 1-propanol, 2-propanol, 1,3-propanediol, 1,3-butanediol, 2,3-butanediol
, and 1,4-butanediol.
(CAS 513-85-9) Market Research Report 2012 presents comprehensive data on 2,3-butanediol
markets globally and regionally (Europe, Asia, North America etc.
The many products of syngas fermentation proven at lab scale or larger include ethanol, butanol, acetic acid, butyric acid, 2,3-butanediol
