Artificial Cyanobacterial Biofilm Can Sustain Solar-driven Ethylene Production for Over a Month


Ethylene is one of the most important and widely used organic chemicals. The research group at the University of Turku led by Associate Professor Yagut Allahverdiyeva-Rinne has designed a thin-layer artificial biofilm with embedded cyanobacterial cell factories which were specifically engineered for photosynthetic production of “green” ethylene. The fabricated biofilms have sustained ethylene production for up to 40 days.
