Atsumi reports cyanobacterial synthesis of 2,3 butanediol at over 0.1 g/L-day

See Cyanobacterial conversion of carbon dioxide to 2,3-butanediol in PNAS, Engineered bacteria make fuel from sunlight and Bacterias diseñadas para producir combustibles, plásticos y otros químicos .

The UC/Davis post notes: After three weeks growth, the cyanobacteria yielded 2.4 grams of 2,3 butanediol per liter of growth medium — the highest productivity yet achieved for chemicals grown by cyanobacteria and with potential for commercial development, Atsumi said.
