While visiting Syngenta Biotechnology, Inc. in Raleigh, NC, blogger Chuck came across researchers working to develop corn with an amylase enzyme trait that would speed up starch conversion to sugar. The company hopes to have the corn on the market by 2008, and the modified corn would not need to have the enzyme added when the corn is processed into ethanol, which in turn would make ethanol quicker and easier to produce. Chuck also interviewed Bruce Howison, the head of marketing for Syngenta Seed about the process and adding the enzyme trait to corn could mean for the ethanol industry. The upshot is that Howison said they hope to help make corn a product used for food and fuel.
