Abstract:

The increasing scarcity of traditional fossil fuels along with increasing pollution as a result of their overexploitation has entailed the need for renewable fuels. As a result, fuels derived from biomass are gaining credit due to their economic feasibility and environment-friendly nature. Among available liquid biofuels, biobutanol is being considered as an apt and sustainable substitute of gasoline. Fate and mercantile of butanol production through fermentative route thoroughly depend on the selection of a suitable feedstock. The modern artificial biology provides additional tools to engineer artificial pathways in user-friendly hosts to help increase thresholds and productivity of bio-butanol. This review summarises the production process of biobutanol, its scope and challenges that come across in the way of its commercial use.
