Bugs to Excrete a $50 Barrel of Oil

Cars, Gas

Staying with the Gas and Auto theme.


Genetically modified bugs in California are being developed to consume waste and excrete oil.  What is being termed renewable petroleum”, LS9 one of the companies creating these bugs also claims that the oil will be carbon negative.


Initially industrial yeast or strains of E. coli, their DNA is then modified to excrete what is comparable to crude oil instead of the normally excreted fatty acids.


The company plans to use waste agricultural products to avoid the problems associated with using corn.  LS9 states that if Brazilian sugar cane is used it could produce a $50 dollar barrel of oil.  Commercial scale production is planned for 2011.
