From the exotic Valley of Geysers in far eastern Russia comes a bacteria that could propel the biofuel market far past its petroleum rivals. We’re comparing it to graphene, that atom-thin “wonder material,” because like graphene this little bug possesses uniquely powerful properties, enabling it to function faster and more efficiently than its conventional counterparts.

And for that pathway to low cost biofuel, we US taxpayer can thank ourselves: The latest research on this bug was supported by the Department of Energy’s Office of Science, through the Bioenergy Research Center anchored by Oak Ridge National Laboratory and the University of Georgia.
