Many sources of gaseous wastes are both climate risks and lost economic opportunities. But synthetic biology uses microbes to turn waste into valuable bio-based fuels and chemical intermediates while lowering their climate impact. Learn from NREL researcher Michael Guarnieri, PhD, whether these processes can actually scale to work both technically and financially.
