Clemson Researchers Look to Grass to Make Gas

Researchers at Clemson University are looking into switchgrass as a renewable fuel source. The process of breaking down the parts of plants that hold carbohydrates, cellulose and xylan, has been difficult to solve therefore, Clemson researchers are looking to fungi and bacteria for their decomposing properties. Should these studies yield positive results, the development of cost-competitive biofuels from plant biomass won’t be far away.
