Example text

For example, industrial yeast strains such as Saccharomyces cerevisiae or other yeast naturally ferment glucose and the other six carbon sugars into ethanol. Furthermore, although native yeast cannot ferment the five carbon sugars arabinose and xylose to ethanol with high yields, various bacteria such as Escherichia coli and yeast including Saccharomyces cerevisiae have been genetically engineered so they now produce ethanol from these sugars with high yields [37–40]. We can therefore view these sugars as reactive intermediates that can be biologically converted into ethanol and other final products.

Plant materials could have a much greater impact if vast, low-cost untapped sources of cellulosic biomass such as agricultural and forestry residues, portions of municipal waste, and dedicated crops could be inexpensively converted into a range of fuels and commodity chemicals in large-scale biorefineries [23]. In fact, inexpensive transformation of biomass into liquid fuels and commodity chemicals will be essential if society is to sustainably and economically meet such needs [24–26]. Although the term cellulosic biomass may not be a household word, it represents the structural portion of a large group of well-known plants.
