Biofuel from renewable biomass is one of the solutions to the limited supply of fossil resources and climate change. Butanol has superior liquid-fuel characteristics, with similar properties to gasoline, and thus, has the potential to be used as a substitute for gasoline. Herein, we review recent discoveries of metabolic pathways for butanol production from biomass and the metabolic engineering strategies being developed.
