Intro Biofuels         used to be taking farming and using the crops as fuel Now,   bacteria is used
How it works Bacteria   with recombinant DNA    The bacteria uses common foods    And makes ethanol or diesel as a waste
Different uses Some   bacteria make electricity Some   make ethanol Some   make diesel
Diesel Using   sugar, and even better, cellulose Most    recently, E. Coli is used They also used E. Coli to create an ...
Ethanol The materials and methods are the same or similar to making biodiesel The only difference is that the gene is di...
Electricity Microbial    fuel cells convert glucose to electricity Thebacterial colonies create an electrode surface up ...
How it works Scientistsfirst take genes from various  plants or bacteria There   are three genes they take     One to b...
What about electricity? The   gene is taken from various bacteria Only   one gene sequence is used for this    It uses ...

Biofuel

  1. 1. BiofuelBy: Jamie Demers
  2. 2. Intro Biofuels used to be taking farming and using the crops as fuel Now, bacteria is used
  3. 3. How it works Bacteria with recombinant DNA  The bacteria uses common foods  And makes ethanol or diesel as a waste
  4. 4. Different uses Some bacteria make electricity Some make ethanol Some make diesel
  5. 5. Diesel Using sugar, and even better, cellulose Most recently, E. Coli is used They also used E. Coli to create an enzyme that breaks down plants into the cellulose they need.
  6. 6. Ethanol The materials and methods are the same or similar to making biodiesel The only difference is that the gene is different
  7. 7. Electricity Microbial fuel cells convert glucose to electricity Thebacterial colonies create an electrode surface up to 3.6 W m
  8. 8. How it works Scientistsfirst take genes from various plants or bacteria There are three genes they take  One to break down cellulose  One to tell the bacteria to secrete the enzyme  And one to convert the sugar to biodiesel
  9. 9. What about electricity? The gene is taken from various bacteria Only one gene sequence is used for this  It uses glucose to drain off their electrons.
  10. 10. Ethical concerns Fortunately for biofuel producers There are relatively no ethical issues with biofuels Only one  Some people don’t like scientists messing with genetic code
  11. 11. Impact Thiscould have a huge impact on the world We would no longer need to use fossil fuels And the fear of running out of oil will be gone.
