Abstract

The current focus on the development and implementation of clean, renewable replacements for fossil fuels rivals technological challenges of recent decades, such as the race to put a man on the Moon and the completion of the human genome. This presentation will cover second-generation biofuels, focusing on novel thermophilic (“heat-loving”) microorganisms and enzymes.
