Lim et al. (2023): Biohybrid CO2 electrolysis for the direct synthesis of polyesters from CO2

Jinkyu Lim, So Young, Jae Won, Hyunjoo Lee IN: Applied Biological Sciences,

The authors show that the integration of CO2 electrolysis with microbial fermentation can efficiently produce value-added multicarbon products such as poly-3-hydroxybutyrate (PHB) from gaseous CO2. This biohybrid system comprises electrochemical conversion of CO2 to formate and subsequent biological conversion of formate to PHB by Cupriavidus necator.
