"Green" Ethylene Production Using Artificial Cyanobacterial Biofilm
News   Oct 16, 2020

Ethylene is one of the most important and widely used organic chemicals. Researcher have designed a thin-layer artificial biofilm with embedded cyanobacterial cell factories which were specifically engineered for photosynthetic production of “green” ethylene. The fabricated biofilms have sustained ethylene production for up to 40 days.
