Modified poplar trees could lower biofuel production costs

Using genetic engineering methods, a team of researchers from the U.S. and Canada have developed poplar trees that produce a form of lignin that can be easily dissolved for biofuel production, potentially resulting in cheaper energy conversion. "The potential for saving energy is so high that this change should be considered in every plant that's destined to be pulped or converted to biofuel," researcher John Ralph said. The findings were reported in the journal Science.
