The University of Georgia   researchers created a “super strain” of yeast that ferments ethanol from pretreated pine as part of an effort to help biofuels take the place of gasoline for fuel. The research shows pine fermented with the new yeast can successfully withstand toxic compounds and produce ethanol from higher concentrations of pretreated pine than previously published.
