Sustainable use of CO2 using a modified bacterium

March 11, 2020
A team of scientists from the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Plant Physiology in Potsdam-Golm, led by Dr. Arren Bar-Even, has succeeded in reprogramming the diet of the bacterium E. coli in such a way that it can use formic acid or methanol as its sole source of nutrition. These simple organic compounds can be produced efficiently from carbon dioxide (CO2) by chemical processes, so that this greenhouse gas could be used sensibly in the future and its contribution to climate change could be reduced.
