The method was developed at the Aalto University in Finland which allowed the use of microbes for the production of butane biofuels and other industrial chemicals from biomass.

Pooling butane plant and plant materials in modern bio-refineries would ensure significant savings in terms of energy use and fuel production.

Bio-butane is considered to be the most appropriate transportation fuel due to higher energy density, which makes it similar to fossil fuels and may be at higher concentrations mixed with gasoline or diesel without the need for engine modification.

Currently, starch and sugar canes are widely used as raw materials for production of butane. The new process for obtaining butane will be able to use wood, soft wood and recycled fiber.

During the study, researchers from the University of Aalto modified the process of getting the paper, and thus apart from cellulose, managed to preserve and other sugars that occur in the process and are suitable as a raw material for the microbes in the production of bio-butane.

The new process will help in promoting the concept bio-refineries and increase the share of refining wood residues that can be used in the manufacture of paper pulp. In addition, this will help avoid further conversion of agricultural land in the land where grown feed-stock for biofuel production.
