Applications of Synthetic Biology in Renewable Energy

Renewable Energy

The global population boom coupled with rapid industrialization has significantly increased per capita energy consumption worldwide. The volatility of oil prices, security of oil supplies, major concerns about depleting reserves, and climate change issues have reignited interest in producing fuels from renewable resources, leading to access to affordable, renewable, and environmentally friendly energy as one of the most important challenges of this century. In addressing sustainable energy, biological solutions are considered the most sustainable alternative to fossil fuels due to their unique advantages. Advanced strategies developed by synthetic biology have made it possible to generate energy from novel producers such as microorganisms, which contributes to the move toward the next generation of bio-based forms of energy.

Synthetic biology is an emerging field that aims to design and construct novel biological systems by integrating multiple scientific disciplines to achieve rationally formulated goals. It offers scientists a pathway to rapidly develop renewable fuels through biological systems. Recent advances in synthetic biology and metabolic engineering have enabled the improvement of existing methods for biofuel production from plants, as well as the development of cell factories through enzyme and metabolic engineering to produce unnatural products with better fuel properties. Synthetic biology has developed rapidly in the last decade. A large number of efficient and practical synthetic biology tools have been developed and applied to the development of renewable energy. Such tools will contribute to the innovation and optimization in biofuel production, bringing unique capabilities to sustainable energy.

Major applications of synthetic biology in renewable energy

  • Conversion of sugars to biofuels.
  • Conversion of fatty acids to biofuels.
  • Bioconversion of starch into ethanol.
  • Microalgae-based biofuel engineering.
  • Conversion of glycerol-rich feedstocks to biofuels.
  • Production of biodiesel from microbes, plants, yeast, and microalgae.
