RE: How sugar-loving bacteria may be able to assist in the production of future automobiles

On the other hand, further research is needed to fully understand new technology's advantages and evaluate if it can be scaled up efficiently for the production of biofuels or other purposes. One of the first concerns to be answered will be whether or not the energy cost of making olefins is too high to be practicable on an industrial scale. Another concern is how much energy is used in the production of olefins.

Increasing output is also in the best interest of scientists. About 8 olefin molecules are needed to produce 100 glucose, Wang calculates. To improve this ratio, the researcher is hoping to encourage E. coli to produce more 3-hydroxy fatty acid per gram of glucose consumed.

Dear @jsalvage, Your article is interesting!
However, the current production cost of biofuel is more expensive than that of petroleum fuel. In particular, the problem of carbon emission through sugar farming will cause environmental problems.

Indeed, this is the exact problem with many alternative sources of energies, at least for now. Producing them is not efficient enough and costs more energy than what could be released afterwards. But hopefully this will get fixed a some point.

Nice meet you @lemouth! Are you french?

Nice to meet you as well. I am not French, but I live in France for more than a decade.

The progress and enhancement of instruments needed to produce and process these new sources of energy is something that I feel it will be improved and advanced in the future

I would like to believe so to :)

Yes, but I believe there must be a way out. Sorry for the late response, currently I'm having my first exam in this university I am . Hope you're doing good 😽👍

Dear @jsalvage, I hope you will have a scholaship! In the world I live in, the number of coronavirus cases and deaths is skyrocketing. What is the current situation with the coronavirus in Nigeria?
I pray for your healty and fotune!

The virus issue here has come to an end completely. We thank God for that. Nigeria is cool, we are about to start our usual harmattan season 😃

That is good!

Indeed you tried to scruple it to the core....

Dear @ezeemmanuel, What do you mean?😯

I was trying to say that you just used a small write-up to make a big meaning.

I understand!

Thank you so much

You are welcome boss
