Enhancing the efficiency of cereal straw for biofuel production
A collaborative research effort by the University of Hong Kong (HKU) and Kyoto University (Kyoto U) has revealed a new strategy to allow cellulose in rice straw to release its fermentable sugar more efficiently. The yield of glucose was increased by 37% without any chemical treatment. This research breakthrough was recently published in a notable plant science journal Plant Physiology.
