3-D-Printed, Enzyme-Embedded Polymer Converts Methane into Methanol

from AZoM

Scientists from Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) have merged both 3-D printing and biology to develop the very first reactor that will have the potential to continuously create methanol from methane at room pressure and temperature. The scientists removed enzymes from methanotrophs, which is a type of bacteria that eats methane. The team then mixed the methanotrophs with polymers which molded or printed into innovative reactors. more
