Artificial cyanobacterial biofilm can sustain green ethylene production for over a month

Ethylene is one of the most important and widely used organic chemicals. A research group has designed a thin-layer artificial biofilm with embedded cyanobacterial cell factories which were specifically engineered for photosynthetic production of ‘green’ ethylene. The fabricated biofilms have sustained ethylene production for up to 40 days.
