Fashioning fuel from plants requires freeing the individual sugar molecules that make up a plant's fundamental structure, which means severing the chemical bond that holds them together. The crucial process of breaking the chemical bond among the sugar molecules is known as depolymerization. Right now, depolymerization is the single most expensive aspect of producing biofuels. EBI researchers in this program are determined to develop less costly methods, reducing the cost of producing and buying biofuels.
Principal Investigators (PIs) and Co-Principal Investigators (Co-PIs) share the responsibilities for the goals and objectives of their research project. Together, they manage the scientific, fiscal and administrative aspects that encompass the work, including the efforts of collaborators or other participants.
