Wouldn’t it be nifty if someone could make fuel from something as cheap as old newspapers? Someone has. Tulane University scientists have discovered a bacterial strain that can use paper to produce a substitute for gasoline.

Dubbed TU-103, it’s the first bacterial strain that produces butanol directly from cellulose, the most abundant organic material on earth. With at least 323 million tons of old newspapers thrown out each year, the US has a potentially unlimited fuel supply that can fuel automobiles without any modifications to their engines – and can have a positive impact on our landfills.

Tulane University is designated by the Carnegie Foundation as a research university with “very high research activity.” The school is a private, nonsectarian research institution located in New Orleans, Louisiana. Founded as a public medical college in 1834, the university is organized today into 10 schools centered on liberal arts, sciences, and specialized professions. Tulane holds four ratings from The Princeton Review: Great College Towns, Best in the Southeast, College with a Conscience and Happiest Students. The latter rating might be associated with another Princeton Review ranking: 19th in its list of Top Party Schools.

Media references for Tulane include the television show House; Dr. House is a Tulane Medical School graduate. Walker Percy’s novels, Love in the Ruins and The Moviegoer are partially set on Tulane’s campus, as is The Pelican Brief by John Grisham.
