Researchers have found that seawater can replace freshwater to produce the sustainable fuel Bioethanol, reducing the need to drain precious resources.
The study – ‘The establishment of a marine focused biorefinery for bioethanol production using seawater and a novel marine yeast strain’ – has been published in Scientific Reports and was carried out by researchers at the University of Nottingham. Their results showed that seawater can be used in Bioethanol production along with a new strain of marine based yeast.
Dr Abdelrahman Zaky, a microbiologist in the School of Biosciences, conducted his research using seawater from the Lincolnshire coast and took his marine yeast samples from various locations in the UK, US and Egypt. He put them through the fermentation process in the laboratories in Bioenergy and Brewing Science Building at the University’s Sutton Bonington campus.
