Over the past decade the demand for technology which can make our global economy more sustainable has increased exponentially. In the field of biotechnology, one of the many advancements is focussed on the conversion of agricultural waste streams towards commodity chemicals. Plant biomass can be an environmental and sustainable alternative for the use of petrochemical substrates, with a special interest towards processes which use plant biomass in waste streams rather than currently used feedstocks, such as corn and sugarcane molasses that are competing with food production.
