The conversion of carbon monoxide (CO) into ethanol presents a promising avenue for sustainable biofuel production, offering a method to recycle industrial waste gases into valuable energy resources. This study introduces a novel microbial catalyst capable of efficiently converting CO into ethanol under mild conditions. Utilizing a genetically engineered strain of Clostridium ljungdahlii, we demonstrate enhanced ethanol production rates in a bioreactor setup, providing a viable pathway for the bioconversion of CO into ethanol. The findings highlight the potential of microbial biotechnology in addressing the dual challenges of waste gas management and renewable energy production.
