A researcher at Auburn University is seeking to develop a more cost-effective way of converting farm and woody biomass into butanol. Butanol is a promising advanced biofuel, but technical issues, such as hydrolysate inhibition, present barriers to cost-effective production, said researcher Maobing Tu. The project is supported by a five-year, $401,155 award from the National Science Foundation.
