[USA] Here’s the future of ethylene production as Dr. Jianping Yu sees it.
“We envision some farms in the field that cover many acres. We will have cyanobacteria harvesting sunlight and CO2 and then produce ethylene or ethylene derivatives,” said Yu, a research scientist in the Photobiology Group at the Energy Department’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory.
