Berkeley Lab-led Project Aims to Produce Liquid Transportation Fuel from Methane

A Berkeley Lab-led team hopes to engineer a new enzyme that efficiently converts methane to liquid transportation fuel. “There’s a lot of methane available, and we want to develop a new way to harness it as an energy source for vehicles,” says Christer Jansson, a biochemist in the Earth Sciences Division who heads the effort. The ARPA-E project also involves researchers from the Life Sciences Division, the Advanced Light Source, the Joint BioEnergy Institute, and several industrial partners. More>
