Enzymes used to produce methanol

Enzymes are the key to a new process to convert carbon dioxide into methanol. The process, developed by Bakul Dave and Robyn Obert of the Southern Illinois University, uses three enzymes, one of which is normally responsible for removing alcohol in the liver. The researchers believe the process could help provide methanol feedstocks, and to […]

Enzymes are the key to a new process to convert carbon dioxide into methanol. The process, developed by Bakul Dave and Robyn Obert of the Southern Illinois University, uses three enzymes, one of which is normally responsible for removing alcohol in the liver. The researchers believe the process could help provide methanol feedstocks, and to cut carbon dioxide emissions from other processes.
