Researchers engineer yeast to tolerate ionic liquid used in biomass pretreatment for biofuel production

Green Car Congress

Ionic liquids—neutral salts that attain a liquid state at temperatures mostly below 100 ?C—are C—are very effective in the pretreatment of biomass to make its cellulose highly accessible to cellulase enzymes that hydrolyze it into glucose for fermentation by microbes. However, ionic liquids are toxic to biofuel-producing microbes such as the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae. This toxicity is enough to make the yeast as much as 70% less efficient at turning sugar into biofuel.
