LanzaTech is initially converting carbon monoxide (CO) to 2,3-butanediol
and then subsequently converts it to 1,2-butadiene using gas fermentation.
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

Aqueous two-phase extraction of 2,3-butanediol
from fermentation broths using an ethanol/phosphate system.
and ethanol were the predominant fermentation products in the IR silage (Table 2).
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).
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.
