Algal Proteins Will Contribute to Biofuel Production

When we think about biorefining and biofuel production, the two types of raw materials that strikes our mind are carbohydrates and lipids. Biofuels like ethanol are derived from carbohydrate raw materials such as sugars and lignocellulose, while biodiesel is derived from lipids. Proteins had been completely ignored as a potential biomaterial because they’ve been thought […]
