Significant work on the metabolic engineering of E. coli has been completed. The incorporation and expression of pyruvate decarboxylase and alcohol dehydrogenase II genes from Z. mobilis into E. coli under the control of a common (lac) promoter results in high ethanol yield due to co-fermentation of hexose and pentose sugars. Xylose isomerase (XI), encoded by the xylA gene, catalyzes the isomerization of xylose to xylulose in bacteria and some fungi. Recent developments to improve XI activity and heterologous expression in S.
4 million metric tons of high-quality livestock feed. 11) (RFA 2013). This level of output will make it necessary to find new markets and uses for coproducts. New uses being considered include food, fertilizer, and cat litter. While the majority of feed is dried and sold as Distillers Dried Grains with Solubles (DDGS), approximately 20–25 % is fed wet locally, reducing energy costs associated with drying as well as transportation costs. 4 million metric tons of corn gluten feed and germ meal, and 565 million pounds of corn oil.
But technology has pushed operating costs lower. For example, enzyme costs for a liter of cellulosic ethanol dropped 72 % between 2008 and 2012 due to technological improvements, BNEF said. Cellulosic ethanol producers will shift their focus from technology enhancements to logistical planning over the next 5–10 years in an effort to rein in capital costs, suggesting the industry is maturing, said BNEF’s lead biofuel analyst Harry Boyle. Globally, there are 14 enzymatic hydrolysis pilots, nine demonstration-stage projects, and 10 semi-commercial-scale plants either announced, commissioned or due online shortly, according to the survey.
