Biopropanol The research group of professor Michihiko Kataoka at Osaka Prefecture University (Osaka, www.osakafu-u.ac.jp) has genetically engineered E. coli to produce 1-propanol by the fermentation of glucose. The 1-propanol yield from the engineered strain has been shown to be 1.5 to 2 times higher than that achieved by others, says Kataoka. The higher yield was achieved by suppressing the production of CO2. Kataoka believes the technology is a first step toward a sustainable route for making biopropylene, a precursor for polypropylene.
