TR10: Solar Fuel

One of this year’s TR10 innovators, Joule Biotechnologies, is developing a way to make biofuels without agricultural plants, using genetically engineered photosynthetic bacteria. We asked founder Noubar Afeyan about how his biofuel differed from others, and how long it might be before people could be filling their cars with it.
