Possible Clean Technology Breakthrough in Production of Malonic Acid

From the U.S. Department of Energy Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy:

This machine is used in the scale-up of a new clean technology breakthrough that could help reduce America’s dependence on #petroleum by producing malonic acid from sugar. Malonic acid is used for non-fuel related products such as pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, fragrances, food flavors, and other specialty materials. Learn about new Lygos, Inc. #bioenergy research at our Berkeley Lab in #California to reduce #energy use, decrease #carbon emissions and eliminate toxic inputs in the production of critical petroleum based products Americans use every day:
