Tailor-Made Fuels from Biomass
TMFB is the excellenc cluster of RWTH Aachen University dealing with all aspects of bio fuel production, from pretreatment of biomass to combustion. At the iAMB we are working on the optimization of Ustilago for the synthesis of itaconic acid (IRF-A3-4) and Pseudomonas for the production of intermediate molecules (IRF-A4-10a). Both as platform molecules for chemical bio-fuel synthesis.
