Oil and metals on earth ever run out. Another thing – bioorganizmy. They are ready to replicate, and thus – in fact, immortal. There are plenty of plans for the Exploration of alternative sources of energy based on biotechnology. It turned out that energy can be produced from plant waste and … living creatures!
For example, experts from the American Organization for Agricultural Research, headed by Dr. Charles Lee came up with to use as biofuel … mushrooms! Rather, shiitake mushroom tree, which grows in South-East Asia. Shiitake are consumed as a delicacy. He has the ability to produce enzymes that can quickly degrade the wood and derive nutrients. Scientists decided to modify the gene responsible for producing this enzyme. If he is able to decompose not only the tree, but also various biological waste, then based on it can be produce ethanol, which serves as fuel.
