Biocatalytic Desulfurization of Diesel Fuel

Basic information

The burning of sulfur containing compounds in petroleum fuel stocks has been linked with acid rain and cardiopulmonary disease. Bacteria degrade dibenzothiophene (DBT), but not on the macroscale. Introduction of aromatic rich peptides have shown the capacity to bind DBT and may present a novel method of sulfur removal.
