Norway uses tobacco to produce biomass degrading enzymes

The researchers transformed tobacco plants from the genetic layer to produce an enzyme that breaks down organic matter in the forest. This will promote biofuel production to be more efficient, economical and sustainable.

The biorefinery industry produces fuel, energy, heat, and a wide range of chemicals, such as food waste, litter and other biomass. Today, still faces enormous difficulties for the biological processing litter from the forest, not only because of the cell wall of woody biomass is extremely difficult to decompose, but also because the industrial production process requires a large number of enzymes involved in the reaction. A research project in Norway is committed to the establishment of tobacco plants based on low cost to obtain industrial enzyme “ green plants, the enzyme can be used for biofuel preparation, is expected to yield biochemical products substitution of petroleum products. The sources of these biofuels are non food based biomass.

The first step in the production of biofuels is litter grottoes of biomass decomposition into sugars, the process requires the participation of enzymes. However, the high cost of preparing enzymes at this time is a major obstacle to the sustainable development of biological extraction. Normally, enzymes are obtained through fermenter systems, which are more common in the food industry, producing food and alcohol. But a fermentation tank system is usually expensive, requiring not only sterile conditions, but also a large amount of energy and water to control the pressure and temperature in the tank. The project will reduce carbon emissions from biological refining by using genetically modified tobacco plants, and the ultimate goal of the project is to replace the energy consuming fermenter system.

““ plants can use carbon dioxide and energy from the sun,” says Clark &middot, head of project at the Norway Institute of agriculture and environment. “This makes the entire process of producing enzymes environmentally friendly.”. According to its introduction, tobacco plant leaves large and many, biomass rich, coupled with a short growth cycle, can be harvested three to four times a year, therefore, become ideal plants.

In the first phase of the project, researchers will look for candidate enzymes. “ our goal is to utilize tobacco to obtain low cost cell wall degrading enzymes and to detect and test valuable new enzymes. Clark · “ Liu said, we are committed to carry out the pilot and large-scale production of the selected enzyme, and then we will partner Borregaard to get enzyme test.

Borregaard is a production of environmentally friendly products of the Norway company, product range covers chemical products, biological materials and bio ethanol can replace petroleum products. The company has developed a process to convert biomass into chemicals and biofuels, and its demonstration workshop has been running for two and a half years.

“ enzymes are the most expensive products in the production process except raw materials. Technical director Borregaard Gul Bligh Ende · lafalce rood said. He explained that the enzyme manufacturer number has always maintained a high price, but it has been purchased Borregaard enzyme from these manufacturers. “ we are trying to find alternative solutions for a more efficient production process. If the team can achieve this goal, we will get a new and more economical preparation method. Only in this way can our products be more competitive than petroleum products.

The researchers will find a gene fragment that allows plants to produce multiple enzymes, genetically engineered to turn them into tobacco plants and produce them, thereby producing enzymes that can efficiently break down biomass.

“Clark, &middot,” Liu explains, “they’re adding gene fragments that produce proteins, and proteins are the agents.”. “ genes are only genetic information; only genes can be expressed in order to obtain corresponding functional products. We use tobacco plants to express genes that we need products. Because of this, she compares tobacco plants to mobile phones.

She said: “ many years ago, my mobile phone is just a phone almost half a catty. Today, mobile phones are almost versatile and can be used as cameras, networks and recorders. Its core function, however, remains a telephone. This, like plants, has not changed in essence, but has added several functions. Therefore, as we learn more about plants, our understanding of biotechnology is even more profound.

Clark &middot, Liu said, “there is no such thing as moral resistance, as far as gene modification technology is applied to tobacco.”.

She said: “&ldquo, first of all, we do not eat these modified tobacco; secondly, because of the cold weather in Norway, it is not possible to grow outdoors in Norway.”. The modified plant will be present in the greenhouse, with the permission of the Norway health bureau. Some people are skeptical about genetically modified organisms. In fact, we are just using tobacco plants to produce enzymes needed for biological refining. I believe we can benefit a lot from it because we can get enzymes in a more economical way, and we will use tobacco plants in a more environmentally friendly way.

The Nordic countries have announced their energy development plans, and plans to complete the energy system by 2050. This means that by 2050 biofuels will account for at least 50% of the energy used in transportation systems. In Norway, many country level policies have been put into action aimed at promoting the use of renewable energy sources.

The company produces 20 million litres of ethanol each year, of which about 5 million litres are used to produce biofuels. However, only a small amount of biofuel is sold in Norway. Lafalce Rudd explained that due to the sustainable and predictable lack of policy, the European bio fuel market as a whole in a wait state.

“ in Norway, the market is out of touch with decision making. The second generation biofuel production has been carried out in sarpsborg. This requires long-term and stable policy support. La Faas Ruud says. He pointed out that Switzerland is a success story in the establishment of bio fuel market. This is due to the Swiss law has been introduced to the mandatory second generations of bio fuels with fossil fuel common use.
